Electronic Conferencing in Education: An Example from Social Work.
Lancaster, Kenneth; Stokes, Jack
The use of electronic conferencing in undergraduate social work courses at Southeast Missouri State University and Middle Tennessee State University is discussed. Conferencing increases student participation, encourages more effective relationships among participants, and provides additional feedback experiences. Faculty determined that selection of any computer application for courses be guided by specific teaching and learning goals and not by the sense of wonder created by the technology. When selecting computer technology for the classroom, time saving and efficiency are less significant considerations than the quality of the educational experience for the student. Two methods of measuring the student experience are in process: a survey instrument administered to all students who used electronic conferencing in social work classes, and a videotaped panel of students who have used electronic conferencing.
