1 Review
Action research has become a valued research and educational development technique -an innovative approach through which a group of participants engage in self-reflection to improve practice. Developing Innovation in Online Learning introduces action research as a method of developing e-learning modules and courses.
The book covers both the theory and practice of applying action research principles to develop online learning. The material is grounded in the experiences of practitioners and features practical advice, case studies, models for implementation, a design framework and e-tutoring strategies.
The four 'building blocks' of e-learning covered are:
* The organisational context
* The pedagogic model
* The educational setting
* The evaluation process
This book will be an essential resource for education managers, course developers, and educational researchers.
