Enabling Meaningful Learning through Web-Based Instruction with Occupational Therapy Students
Perlman, Cynthia; Weston, Cynthia; Gisel, Erika
Educational Technology Research and Development, v58 n2 p191-210 Apr 2010
This paper explores the design of a Web-based tutorial for Activity Analysis offered within an undergraduate course of occupational therapy and how its design features influenced meaningful learning from the students' perspective. This tutorial, using a case-based format, offers a learner-directed approach to students and the application of Activity Analysis, a clinical practice tool. The design is based on principles of meaningful learning for on-line instruction (Jonassen, "Educational Technology," 35, 60-63, 1995) and instructional theories. Analysis of feedback from learners identifies the salient attributes of the tutorial on meaningful learning.
