Case Study: Application of Blended Learning in an Engineering Simulation Course

by Artis, Sharnnia; Allen, Theodore; Allam, Yosef; Afful-Dadzie, Anthony;

Quality Approaches in Higher Education Vol. 4(1), May 2013 article by Theodore T. Allen, Sharnnia Artis, Anthony Afful-Dadzie, and Yosef Allam. The research was conducted at The Ohio State University. This case study documents the transition of an undergraduate software laboratory from face-to-face only instruction to a blended-learning model motivated, in part, by instructor cost savings. To assure quality in learning outcomes was preserved, we implemented the transition using a randomized experiment. Participating students were randomly assigned to blended (treatment) and traditional (control) groups. Performance was measured by pre- and post-knowledge assessment and quizzes. Attitude was measured by the results of a survey administered at the end of the course. The results show that students’ performance in a purely face-to-face instructional class was not significantly different from that based on a blend of online and face-to-face instruction. In addition, the blended type had signifi

Using Assessments to Determine the Quality and Effectiveness of a Collaborative Internship

by Pinelli, Thomas E. ; Hall, Cathy W. ; Brush, Kimberly M. ;

Quality Approaches in Higher Education Vol. 4 No. 1 (May 2013) article by Thomas E. Pinelli, NASA, Cathy W. Hall, East Carolina University, and Kimberly M. Brush, NASA. The Langley Aerospace Research Student Scholars (LARSS) program is a nationally ranked, highly competitive, and collaborative internship program that uses NASA research opportunities to inspire and motivate students to complete a degree in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM). The program’s ultimate goal is to prepare students to be work-ready for employment and research. Formative and summative assessment is used to help determine the quality and effectiveness of the LARSS program. We present data from one portion of our annual (formative) program assessment—mentors’ and student interns’ overall perception of the internship and their assessment of interns’ acquisition of 21st century workplace skills. We provide a detailed description of a (summative) longitudinal study presently underway that will

Critical Event Narrative Inquiry in Higher Education Quality

by Webster, Len; Mertova, Patricia;

Quality Approaches in Higher Education Vol. 3 (2) Dec 2012 article by Patricie Mertova and Len Webster. The paper is another one of a series of works describing a research study concerning the academic voice in higher education quality in England and the Czech Republic (Mertova & Webster, 2009). To investigate the academic voice in higher education quality, a critical event narrative inquiry method was employed, and that is the focus of this paper. A significant feature of the method was eliciting critical events related to higher education quality in professional practice of academics and higher education leaders. The research uncovered a number of similar issues and concerns in higher education quality voiced by academics and higher education leaders in both countries. Some culture-specific issues related predominantly to Czech higher education quality were also uncovered.
