In-Class Versus Interactive Television Instruction

A Study to Determine Comparability

by Robinson, Christine; Plum, David;

Quality Approaches in Higher Education Vol 3 (1) Feb 2012 article by David Plum and Christine Robinson. The economic factors and convenience advantages of interactive television (ITV) classes are well known. The question remains, however, as to the effectiveness of ITV instruction versus traditional in-class, face-to-face instruction. This study provides a statistical comparison of the relative effectiveness of three approaches: traditional face-to-face instruction, face-to-face instruction combined with originating an ITV class, and remote ITV-recipient classes. Final grade performance was analyzed using several different models and tests, with care taken to screen out controllable variables to the extent possible. Results failed to detect a significant positive or negative impact on grades due to ITV instruction.

Using Active, Cooperative Quality Exercises to Enhance Learning

by Griesemer, James A. ;

Quality Approaches in Higher Education Vol. 2 (2) Dec 2011 article by James A. Griesemer. Active, cooperative quality learning exercises were used to enhance learning in an undergraduate operations/supply chain management course. The quality tools and techniques supported course topics while also adding to students’ first-hand knowledge of quality management. Such exercises were found to improve students’ critical thinking and problem-solving skills significantly. Based on this early success, additional active, cooperative quality learning exercises are being developed for use in other business courses.
