Electronic Mail as a Forum for Argumentative Interaction in Higher Education Studies.
Marttunen, Miika
Journal of Educational Computing Research, v18 n4 p387-405 1998
Reports on a study in which 31 undergraduate students practiced academic argumentation by e-mail. In the two "tutored" e-mail study groups, discussion topics were selected by the tutor, while in the two self-directed "student-led" groups, selection was by the students. Results support the superiority of the student-led mode over the tutor-led mode when promoting argumentative dialog. (Author/AEF)
