Profiles in self-regulated learning in the online learning environment

International Review of Research in Open and Distributed LearningIndividuals who are self-regulated in their learning appear to achieve more positive academic outcomes than individuals who do not exhibit self-regulated learning behaviors. We suggest that distinct profiles of self-regulated learning behaviors exist across learners. In turn, these profiles appear to be associated with significantly different academic outcomes. The purpose of the current study was to examine whether profiles for self-regulated learning skills and strategies exist among learners. To achieve this purpose, we conducted two studies using two different samples. More...

An investigation of distance education in North American research literature using co-word analysis

International Review of Research in Open and Distributed LearningThe field of distance education is composed of a multiplicity of topics leading to a vast array of research literature. However, the research does not provide a chronological picture of the topics it addresses, making it difficult to develop an overview of the evolution and trends in the literature. To address this issue, a co-word analysis was performed on the abstracts of research articles found in two prominent North American research journals (N = 517), the American Journal of Distance Education and the Journal of Distance Education, between 1987 and 2005.

Learning in an online distance education course: Experiences of three international students

International Review of Research in Open and Distributed LearningThis case study explores the learning experiences of three international students who were enrolled in an online master’s program offered by a large university in Canada. The aim of the study was to understand the international students’ experiences with, and perspectives on, the online learning environment. Findings indicate that previous education and especially language proficiency strongly impacted the learning of these students in this environment. Non-native English speakers required considerably more time to process readings and postings and to make postings themselves. More...

The role of volition in distance education: An exploration of its capacities

International Review of Research in Open and Distributed LearningDuring the past two decades, volition, defined as the ability to stay task-focused and ward off distractions, has become of special relevance for educational research and practice. It describes how decreased motivation or negative emotions can be dealt with by applying action control strategies. However, despite its potential, an important area of education has neglected volitional considerations: distance education (DE). This seems paradoxical because by its very nature distance education requires a great deal of persistence and effort that is volitional. More...

Using mobile phones to improve educational outcomes: An analysis of evidence from Asia

International Review of Research in Open and Distributed LearningDespite improvements in educational indicators, such as enrolment, significant challenges remain with regard to the delivery of quality education in developing countries, particularly in rural and remote regions. In the attempt to find viable solutions to these challenges, much hope has been placed in new information and communication technologies (ICTs), mobile phones being one example. This article reviews the evidence of the role of mobile phone-facilitated mLearning in contributing to improved educational outcomes in the developing countries of Asia by exploring the results of six mLearning pilot projects that took place in the Philippines, Mongolia, Thailand, India, and Bangladesh.

Les RH : acteurs clés de la RSE !

Par . Fini le temps où développement durable et responsabilité sociétale des entreprises étaient associés au seul concept de l’environnement. Aujourd’hui salariés, clients, ONG, politiques, organisations syndicales ont bien pris en considération la dimension sociale de ce mouvement. Voir l'article...

Formateur, apprenants : qui tient le discours ?

Par . Aujourd’hui, les formateurs sont tiraillés, me semble-t-il, entre deux exigences contradictoires :

  • Porter un discours qui ordonne le réel, qui rend accessible les connaissances et modélise les pratiques de référence ou les grilles de lecture de la réalité.Face à la complexité, au foisonnement d’informations auxquels les apprenants sont confrontés, cette demande de « discours ordonné », selon l’expression de Pierre Mounier, est bien présente.
  • Mais dans le même temps, l’autorité de ce discours, comme de tout discours institutionnel, est contestée. Combien d’entre nous, au plus fort d’un exposé que nous espérions bref et convainquant, n’ont-ils pas été interrompus par un « j’ai vérifié sur internet et… ». Voir l'article...

Professionnalisation : quels engagements réciproques ?

Par . Comme on l’a vu dans le billet précédent, la professionnalisation est affaire de responsabilité partagée et de transactions. D’où l’importance, lorsque l’entreprise s’engage dans une démarche de professionnalisation, d’expliciter les intentions,  les engagements réciproques et les termes de l’échange.

Professionnalisation : de quoi parle-t’on ?

Par . « Professionnalisation », « parcours professionnalisant », « professionnaliser »… le mot est devenu un leitmotiv, une sorte de gage de légitimité des actions de formation. Mais que recouvrent ces termes ? Et quelle est leur actualité, dans un monde en mutation. Voir l'article...
