Promoting innovation in online adult learners

15 May 2012

There have been an important number of research focuses on teaching presence in on line learning settings. However, we need to complement this approach with the analysis of the student's role as learner in an online university. An online learner must quickly use technology and digital materials in comfort, with a high level of self-direction strategy.

In the seminar, I will describe how adult students have to achieve an on line learner role. We will analyse different strategies to promote an active role of the student based on some experiences conducted in the Open University of Catalonia (Spain).
