Adnan, Nor Hafizah; Ritzhaupt, Albert D. – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2018
The failure of many instructional design initiatives is often attributed to poor instructional design. Current instructional design models do not provide much insight into design processes for creating e-learning instructional solutions. Given the similarities between the fields of instructional design and software engineering, instructional…

Bigatel, Paula M.; Edel-Malizia, Stephanie – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2018
This article is a case study of the use of the "Indicators of Engaged Learning Online" (IELO) framework (See Appendix 1) as a guide to evaluate the quality of online courses. The framework lends itself well to measures of engagement, particularly, in terms of online course design because of its comprehensiveness. Six online courses were…

Tomita, Kei – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2018
While authors like Mayer (2009) suggest that designers should avoid using visuals for the purpose of attracting learners' interests, some scholars suggest that visuals could influence learners' emotions. In this study the author investigated whether the perception of the visual appeal of instructional handouts affects learners' self-reported…

Trust, Torrey; Maloy, Robert W.; Edwards, Sharon – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2018
As higher education institutions seek to prepare an increasingly diverse population of students for a rapidly changing future, makerspaces offer a pedagogical approach for engaging all learners in active thinking and hands-on learning while promoting creativity, problem solving, and collaboration skills. In this paper, we discuss ways to integrate…

Baldwin, Sally; Ching, Yu-Hui; Hsu, Yu-Chang – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2018
This research identifies six online course evaluation instruments used nationally or in statewide systems. We examined the characteristics (i.e., number of standards and criteria) and coded the criteria that guide the design of online courses. We discussed the focus of the instruments and their unique features.

Rook, Michael M. – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2018
The author presents a three-step process for selecting participants for any study of a social phenomenon that occurs between people in locations and at times that are difficult to observe. The process is described with illustrative examples from a previous study of help giving in a community of learners. This paper includes a rationale for…

Aguilar, Stephen J. – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2018
We are still designing educational experiences for the "average" student, and have room to improve. Learning analytics provides a way forward. This commentary describes how learning analytics-based applications are well positioned to meaningfully personalize the learning experience in diverse ways. In so doing, learning analytics has the…

Kimmons, Royce; Hall, Cassidy – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2018
We report on a survey of K-12 teachers and teacher candidates wherein participants evaluated known models (e.g., TPACK, SAMR, RAT, TIP) and provided insight on what makes a model valuable for them in the classroom. Results indicated that: (1) technology integration should be coupled with good theory to be effective, (2) classroom experience did…

Cheng, Zui; Watson, Sunnie Lee; Newby, Timothy James – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2018
While Open Digital Badges (ODBs) has gained an increasing recognition as micro-credentials, many researchers foresee the role of ODBs as an innovative learning tool to enhance learning experiences beyond that of an alternative credential. However, little research has explored this topic. The purposes of this paper are to 1) argue that one way to…

Matthews, Michael T.; Yanchar, Stephen C. – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2018
We present a qualitative study of the tension between manipulative and cooperative approaches to instructional design. We found that our participants struggled to resist manipulative tendencies in their work contexts. More specifically, our findings suggest that our participants sought to design with their learners in mind to foster a more…

Franklin, Robin Kesterson; O'Neill Mitchell, Justin; Walters, Kari Siko; Livingston, Beth; Lineberger, Matthew Blake; Putman, Cynthia; Yarborough, Reba; Karges-Bone, Linda – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2018
Based on requirements to promote for reflective practice, both CAEP and edTPA suggest adding a video component to clinical practice. This qualitative pilot study evaluated "Swivl" as that potential recording technological device for clinical practice. During a clinical practice cycle at a private university in the southeastern region of…
