Mistry, Margaret Egan
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, University of Colorado at Denver
This mixed-methods study combines the sociocultural theories of Vygotsky's research on thought and language, Mezirow's Transformational Learning Theory, situated learning theory of Rogoff, Lave, and Wenger, to explore individual and group process and resulting products within an online university radio station system. The study concentrates upon the following components: producers' written and spoken descriptions of their experiences during the creation of their programs, the participants' actual (recorded) programs, and the producers' evaluative perceptions shared after having created, aired, and reflected upon the programs they created.
