Impact of Face-to-Face Interaction in Meeting Needs of Adult Students Enrolled in Web-Based Nursing Courses
Murabito, Sandra Womeldorf
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Trevecca Nazarene University
The purpose of this dissertation is to study the impact of student to faculty face-to-face interaction in meeting the needs of adult students enrolled in web-based nursing courses. The study compared adult and traditional nursing students enrolled in online courses. A non-equivalent control group research design was utilized to compare students who experienced online courses with and without scheduled face-to-face interaction with faculty. The study revealed that while there was a main effect for anxiety, the treatment of face-to-face interaction was not significant in lowering anxiety or increasing connectedness or overall course satisfaction. Further research to identify the best practices for teaching adults is paramount in higher education. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
