Kim, Hye-Shin; LaFleur, Rosetta; Schaeffer, Karen
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v100 n3 p34-41 2008
This study examines how student learning can be enhanced by using a multi-course project that simulates an industry environment and emphasizes the interrelationship among course concepts through collaborative efforts of student teams. The role of technology as a tool in facilitating student teamwork is examined. The researchers found that students who appreciated and understood the importance of technology and the collaborative nature of the multi-course project had a more positive overall response to the multi-course project. Implications of the study's multi-course project as well as instructional tips for conducting multi-course projects embedded with technology are discussed. (Contains 5 tables.)
