Blogs, Peer Grading, and Self-Assessment as Student Motivation, Engagement and Relationship-Building Tools
This presentation examines the concept of "student engagement" in the context of globalization and internationalization of education and the diversity of the student population. It will show how the use of communication technologies in a blended (hybrid, enhanced) classroom can provide new insights on students' motivation, self-confidence, and teamwork needs in the interactive collaborative learning environment. We will examine the role of surveys (both traditional and online) in evaluating learning outcomes, measuring student engagement and assessing the quality of instruction. Further, we will discuss pedagogical recommendations for enhancing our understanding of students' learning and for transforming teaching so that it takes full advantage of technology's potential.
