Correia, Ana-Paula; Baran, Evrim; Cagiltay, Kursat
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (San Diego, CA, Apr 13-17, 2009)
The purpose of this case study is to understand ways to plan, organize and facilitate experiences in which experts who are geographically dispersed act as effective consultants. Graduate students enrolled in an advanced course in instructional technology at a large university in the Midwestern United States interacted with colleagues studying at a highly regarded university in Turkey. Students in Turkey provided professional and expert advice at a distance to their peers in the United States. The experiences, challenges, tensions and strategies for effective consulting relationships heavily supported by computer-mediated communication in international contexts are discussed.
