AP Faculty Research Grant Recipient’s Research Published
Dr. Joohi Lee, Associate Professor, College of Education and Health Professions at the University of Texas at Arlington, was a recipient of AP’s Faculty Research Grant in our 2012 round of proposals for her proposal, “An exploratory study of effective online learning: Assessing satisfaction levels of graduate students of mathematics education associated with human and design factors of an online course.” Lee was recently notified that her AP-funded article will be published in the March/April edition of International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning.
Please see below for the abstract and link to access the full article.
This exploratory research project investigated graduate students’ satisfaction levels with online learning associated with human (professor/instructor and instructional associate) and design factors (course structure and technical aspects) using a survey study. A total of 81 graduate students (master’s students who majored in math and science education) enrolled in an online math methods course (Conceptual Geometry) participated in this study. According to the results of this study, student satisfaction level is closely associated with clear guidelines on assignment, rubrics, and constructive feedback. In addition, student satisfaction level is related to professor’s (or course instructor’s) knowledge of materials.
