Welcome to the Digital CrossRhodes — the intersection of Vincent Rhodes' academic, artistic & professional lives.

PhD Qualifying Exam Question 5

Note: A draft of my questions for my PhD qualifying exam is due 09/24/10 for feedback from my Dissertation Seminar professor and peers. I will then submit them to my dissertation chair for more critique before submitting my final questions10/01/10 . I’ll be writing answers to these questions 10/15/10 – 10/18/10. Your thoughts and suggestions are welcome as I continue to polish, rewrite, panic… Well, you get the point. Please feel free to comment.

Question 5: Contributing to the Field

As colleges and universities expand their online learning options and offerings, fostering online community becomes increasingly important to prevent distance student attrition and promote more effective learning outcomes. Recognizing that a social media tool can enhance a sense of online classroom community (Potts, Gossett & Rhodes, 2010), identify best practices for integrating social media into the course design and briefly discuss some of the advantages of using it.  Be sure to situate your answer in a brief review of the scholarship that supports social media in online education.

    Vincent–This is looking good. I think you may be going a bit too specific though putting Twitter specifically into your question. It’s a lot like the discussion we had about your first question regarding pedagogy. Think about how you can frame this so that the use of Twitter becomes the example you use to discuss the theory and knowledge you want to contribute to the field about using social media to enhance distance-student learning rather than making this discussion about one specific tool. The first part of your question dies this well, I think you just need to work on the last sentence.
