This session will discussion the implications of distance learning based on a qualitative study on student engagement.


FULL ABSTRACT: This presentation will focus on data from a qualitative study which compared how students engage in either traditional asynchronous or on demand distance education models as teacher preparation programs continue the shift towards distance education given its accessibility, flexibility, and popularity despite mixed findings about student content acquisition.
