Quality Virtual Instruction: The Use of Synchronous Online Activities to Engage International Students in Meaningful Learning
Weiler, Spencer C.
Journal of International Education and Leadership, v2 n2 Sum 2012
Online instruction offers students a convenient way to access higher education. However, convenience must never trump quality when it comes to participation in a graduate program. Synchronous learning activities in graduate online courses are an effective way to enhance the learning experiences of all students, and especially those from different countries. Synchronous learning activities enable international students to overcome cultural differences and fully engage in the curriculum. Student observations related to synchronous learning activities are shared to illustrate the value of this sound online pedagogical strategy.
