The Pedagogical Variation Model (PVM) for Work-Based Training in Virtual Classrooms: Evaluation at Kuwait University
Rogers, Maria Susy; Aldhafeeri, Fayiz Mensher
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v61 n2 p184-208 Sum 2015
A collaborative research initiative was undertaken to evaluate the pedagogical variation model (PVM) for online learning and teaching at Kuwait University. Outcomes from sample populations of students--both postgraduates and undergraduates--from the Faculty of Education were analyzed for comparison. As predicted in the PVM, the findings indicate that online e-learners do have preferences for particular e-moderator online teaching strategies. No generalizations can be made due to the small size of the sample. However, joint international research initiatives are developing online learning materials in order to widen access to Web courses and resources.
