What Factors Facilitate Online Counselor Training? Experiences of Campus Alberta Graduate Students
Ekong, Jane Ime
Journal of Distance Education, v21 n1 p1-14 2006
Online learning is here to stay. Many studies have examined factors that facilitate online learning in many disciplines, but few exist on counselor training. This research surveyed online counseling graduate students for factors that they found facilitative. Instructor characteristics such as frequency of participation in discussion forums, constructive and positive feedback to students, and quick return of assignments were found to be most facilitative. Personal characteristics of students such as motive for taking the course, discipline, and time management skills were a close second. (Contains 1 table.)
