Abstract

The interest in and demand for online terminal degress across disciplines by professionals wishing to conduct research and fulfill doctoral degree requirements at a distance is only increasing. But what these programs look like, how they are implemented, and how they might be evaluated are the questions that challenge administrators and pedagogues alike. This book presents a model for a doctoral program that bridges theory, research, and practice and is offered completely or largely online. In their described program model, Kumar and Dawson enable researching professionals to build an online communtiy of inquiry, engage in critical discourse within and across disciplines, learn from and with experts and peers, and generate new knowledge. Their program design is grounded in the theoretical and research foundations of online, adult, and doctoral education, curriculum design and community-building, implementation and evaluation. The authors, who draw on their experience of implementing a similar program at the University of Florida, not only share data collected from students and faculty members but also reflect on lessons learned working on the program in diverse educational contexts. An important guide for program leaders who wish to develop and sustain an online professional doctorate, An Online Doctorate for Researching Professionals will also be a valuable resource for higher education professionals seeking to include e-learning components in existing on-campus doctoral programs.

Abstract

For many learners assessment conjures up visions of red pens scrawling percentages in the top right-hand corner of exams and feelings of stress, inadequacy, and failure. Although negative student reactions to evaluation have been noted, assessment has provided educational institutions with important information about learning outcomes and the quality of education for many decades. But how accurate is this data and has it informed practice or been fully incorporated into the learning cycle? Conrad and Open argue that the potential in many of the new learning environments to alter and improve assesment has yet to be explored by educators and students. In their investigation of assessment methods and learning approaches, Conrad and Openo aim to explore assessment that engages learners and authentically evaluates education. They insist that moving to new learning environments, specifically those online and at a distance, afford educators opportunities to embrace only the most effective face-to-face assessment methods and to realize the potential of delivering education in the digital age. In this volume practitioners will find not only an indispensable introduction to new forms of assessment but also a number of best practices as described by experienced educators.

Abstract

Sowohl für die etablierten als auch für potenzielle neue Akteure im Bildungswesen ist gegenwärtig eine systematische Planung bzw. Analyse ihrer Aktivitäten angesichts der sich wandelnden Wertschöpfungs- und Wettbewerbsstrukturen von hoher Relevanz. Peter Weber zeigt in dieser Arbeit exemplarisch für den Hochschulbereich auf der Basis des diesbezüglich in der Betriebswirtschaftslehre anerkannten Instruments der Geschäftsmodellanalyse Ansatzpunkte für eine Lern-Service-spezifische Interpretation des integrierten Geschäftsmodellansatzes auf. Die besonderen Herausforderungen liegen dabei zum einen in der für eine solche Betrachtung notwendigen ökonomischen Interpretation der implizit thematisierten Bildungsangebote, für die der Begriff der Lern-Services entwickelt wird. Zum anderen zeichnet sich das Handlungsfeld von Lern-Service-Anbietern durch eine Interdisziplinarität aus, die neben der Berücksichtigung ökonomischer auch die Berücksichtigung didaktischer Aspekte notwendig macht.
