Turning Findings into Practice: Results of Cross-Institutional Online Learning Research
The National Research Center for Distance Education and Technological Advancements (DETA Research Center, http://www.uwm.edu/deta) has dedicated three years to designing research models and conducting rigorous research across several higher education institutions (2-year and 4-year) with the purpose being to help identify effective instructional and institutional practices in online courses and programs based on the DETA Research Toolkit developed in 2015.
In this presentation, key quantitative and qualitative findings generated from three cross-institutional research studies about online learning and student success will be shared, research designs used in these studies will be briefly illustrated, and future DETA research collaborations will be contemplated.
