Active Collaborative Learning through Remote Tutoring
Gehret, Austin U.; Elliot, Lisa B.; MacDonald, Jonathan H. C.
Journal of Special Education Technology, v32 n1 p36-46 Mar 2017
An exploratory case study approach was used to describe remote tutoring in biochemistry and general chemistry with students who are deaf or hard of hearing (D/HH). Data collected for analysis were based on the observations of the participant tutor. The research questions guiding this study included (1) How is active learning accomplished in synchronous, remote tutoring for chemistry and biochemistry with students who are D/HH? and (2) Why might active learning be important to include in synchronous, remote tutoring for this student population? Findings included that (a) students approached remote tutoring with the same questions and materials they brought to in-person tutoring and (b) the degree to which tutoring materials could be imbedded into a remote session influenced the session's efficiency and the ability of students to actively participate in remote tutoring.
