Action Research for Technology Enhanced Learning: Faculty and Learner Experiences and Perspectives

Marlene E Brooks.


In the Fall of 2002, the University of Regina received funding from the Office of Learning Technologies, a federal funding agency, to initate an Action Research for Technology Enhanced Learning Project. The ARTEL project was completed in May, 2004. Using a cooperative inquiry group process, an understanding of best practices, issues and challenges emerged. ARTEL cooperative inquiry groups included: learners, faculty, instructional designers, miltimedia graphic designers, technology and learner support personnel, administrators and coordinators.

While faculty describe their experiences for developing and delivering online course, learners describe their experiences when learning at a distance. Through the use of video excerpts obtained during this project the issues, concerns, and best practices described by faculty and learners will be discussed.
