PROFESSIONAL PRESENTATIONS

This Roundtable Discussion was presented at the E-Learn: World Conference on E-Learning in Corporate, Government, Healthcare, and Higher Education in 2018.  The purpose was for participants to compare and contrast strategies for student assessment and dynamic content delivery with the aim of arriving at a consensus of best practices for each.  Also discussed were the specific technologies and websites which facilitate these strategies.

Presented at the SITE Interactive Online 2020 Conference, this short paper addresses the design of the study I conducted for the Teaching Development Grant I received in 2019.  The goal of my research was to design a protocol that enables students in an online mathematics course to submit work in their own handwriting in one, fluid process.  This paper includes a brief review of the literature related to methods of assessment for online mathematics classes, the resulting problem statement, conceptual framework, results of a preliminary investigation, and methods.

Also presented at the SITE Interactive Online 2020 Conference, this full paper describes the instrument I created to assess students' affective reactions to the new protocol for submitting handwritten work in an online course, which was part of the same Teaching Development Grant.  In this paper, I detailed the process of constructing my instrument, presented the reliability analysis, and discussed the construct validity.  These results were used to craft a final version of the instrument which was administered in July 2020.

I delivered this Birds of a Feather Presentation at the SITE Interactive Online 2020 Conference.  The goal was for participants to discuss challenges in translating typical face-to-face course components in STEM classes to an online environment.  Topics addressed included communication and handwritten work, access and equity, student engagement, the comparability of online classes to face-to-face classes, and universal design/accessibility.  Participants spanned the educational gamut, from middle school teachers to instructors in higher education and also spanned the country from Texas to Wyoming, New Mexico to New England and New York.  Overall, participants felt the largest challenge, and the one over which they had the least control, was access and equity.  Potential solutions to all identified challenges were discussed.
