Technology's Impact on Graduate Level Reading: Using Technology to Improve Student Assignment Completion Rates
Diamantes, Thomas
College Student Journal, v41 n1 p79-81 Mar 2007
This paper discusses the critical relation between professor, student and technology in the process of encouraging graduate students to read required textbook sections. It discusses how using online management software, graduate students are required to submit weekly chapter summaries to the professor by 5:00 pm on Fridays. In addition to the chapter summary, graduate students write a personal reflection on how they will connect and use the selected reading assignment in their professional/personal life for self-improvement. Finally, this paper discusses the graduate student's positive and negative reactions towards the integration of the online management software system.
