Electronic Mail as a Pedagogical Delivery System: An Analysis of the Learning of Argumentation.
Marttunen, Miika
Research in Higher Education, v38 n3 p345-63 Jun 1997
Content analysis of 441 electronic mail (e-mail) messages used by 31 Finnish undergraduate students investigated the use of the medium for practicing argumentation (grounding of stated claims) in two teaching modes: a tutor-led seminar and self-directed student discussion. Results indicated argumentation improved during the experiment, especially when counterargumentation was involved and that student-led groups improved most. (Author/MSE)
