Personalized Online Reflective Deliberations: No Significant Differences across Institution Type
ARTICLE

Journal of Instructional Research Volume 7, Number 1, ISSN 2159-0281

Abstract

This research contributes to knowledge about the effectiveness of online deliberations as an innovative means for providing online education. Using a mixed methods approach, student peer exchanges were analyzed on a collaborative website structured around interactive weekly discussions in politics and offered across three types of institutions: a four-year public university, a four-year private university, and a community college. Findings show that despite differences in institution type, the 81 students responded and personalized their discussions with academic reflectivity across class types in their peer discussions.This study finds that interactive discussion forums are a best practice for offering pedagogical content in an online environment and may be used across any discipline or class type whether it is a face-to-face, hybrid, or fully online.
