I am a Ph.D. candidate at Laval University's Faculty of Education (Quebec, Canada), specializing in educational technology. My qualitative research involves developing a sustainable model of online learning for dual mode universities. More specifically, I am exploring the sustainability of communities of inquiry implemented in a synchronous online setting.
For my doctoral thesis, I'm looking for faculty members who will be teaching online with Elluminate or a similar application during the winter 2011 term. Research on teaching and learning in synchronous mode is very limited and so is the number of faculty members teaching in this format, especially at the graduate level. I am trying to find faculty members who meet the following criteria: they offer graduate seminars, in synchronous mode, with a more socioconstructivist approach. I posted more details on my blog.
Should you want more information, please do not hesitate to contact me. Also, if you have any resources that you can share, that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
