Demirdogen, R. Esra
Online Submission, Paper presented at the International Educational Technology (IETC) Conference (7th, Nicosia, Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, May 3-5, 2007)
This paper is about a study, which has been carried out at a chemical production facility in Izmir, Turkey during the spring of 2006 using Participatory Action Research process in a training course exploiting Learning Management System. The system has been tested with 12 chemists working in this factory. The technical training course was carried on in a web-based environment and also routine meetings with the instructors were provided. While for one of the two test groups was expected to deal with problems encountered in the work-place as abstracts problems the other group was expected to bring solutions to the same problems in the factory production line. It was observed that the achievement of both groups was the same, but the work skill of the latter group was better. Hence, it can be concluded that the modes and methods used in education impact competencies of individuals and hence the society. (Contains 2 figures and 1 table.)
