Differential Use and Benefits of PowerPoint in Upper Level versus Lower Level Courses
Roehling, Patricia V.; Trent-Brown, Sonja
Technology, Pedagogy and Education, v20 n1 p113-124 2011
The study examines whether college instructors use PowerPoint differently in upper level versus lower level courses and whether PowerPoint differentially affects the learning and behaviours of students in those courses. The authors surveyed 191 students from 14 psychology classes and found that instructors teaching higher level courses use PowerPoint more frequently and are more likely to make the slides available to students than those teaching beginning-level courses. We also found that students in upper level courses reported greater benefits associated with the use of PowerPoint than those in lower level courses. (Contains 3 tables.)
