Designing for maximum online engagement? What if you found that your engagement strategy actually alienated a large group of online students? This book benefits those tasked with effective online educational strategy and instructional designers alike. It summarises dissertation research (MSc Digital Education at the University of Edinburgh) motivated by a desire to better understand solitary learners' resistance to the dominant social constructivist paradigm's call for more peer interaction during online learning. Challenging the classification of non-interactors as problem cases in a one-size-fits-all learning design, this phenomenological research generated deep understanding of what students perceive as their optimal peer interaction for learning, specifically in relation to their needs of autonomy, competence and relatedness as proposed by self-determination theory to drive motivation and satisfaction. Research was conducted in a Master level online learning environment specifically designed for high social engagement, explicitly demanding frequent student interactions. Results demonstrate a striking diversity of meanings, preferences and roles of peer interaction perceived by the students interviewed that defies the simplistic notion of peer interaction as an always desirable and 'unproblematic good'. 3 groups, solitary learners, cognitive interaction seekers and emotional interaction seekers, with different optimal peer interaction preferences could be identified and their need satisfaction assessed using self-determination theory as a critical lens. Reported optimal peer interaction coincided with the peer interaction quantity and quality that best satisfied needs according to self-determination theory. Strikingly, the exact same online learning design context satisfied universal needs differently, suggesting that mediating variables like beliefs, attitudes and personality seem to drive differing optimal levels. Apart from emotional interaction seekers who felt disempowered to reach their optimum peer interaction levels, participants proved highly resourceful at generating clever coping strategies to create their optimum peer interaction level within the online environment encountered. Against expectations, not those resisting peer interaction but only those seeking it fit the problem case classification and require better design to achieve satisfactory learning environments. Rather than a one-size-fits-all design that forces all students to interact more against their preferences thus causing stress, flexible designs are recommended that allow students with different peer interaction preferences to co-exist and feel empowered to create their subjective personal optimum in mutual understanding of differences. Issues associated with the prevailing deficit model are discussed with a particular focus on the less prominent voice of the solitary learner. Recognising limitations, recommendations for practice are made and areas for further research are identified.A note on methodology: Combining a hermeneutic phenomenological approach with template analysis within an interpretive paradigm facilitated a rich and nuanced qualitative understanding of different optimal peer interaction preferences and motivations while studying online. Data was collected through asynchronously written reflective answers followed by online synchronous interviews among a purposive sample of mature online postgraduate part-time students who had successfully graduated and indicated either high or low importance of peer interaction for their learning.

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: Research on electronic democracy is still limited to a number of institutions, researchers and academics. Nevertheless, interest in the topic grows and new trends and best practices arise. The aim of this thesis was to elaborate on the founding principles of eDemocracy, to build a model for designing eDemocracy initiatives and to examine the current status quo of eDemocracy projects within the European Commission. This thesis is divided into two parts: a theoretical part and an empirical part. In order to build a solid foundation of the core principles of eDemocracy the thesis links reform mechanisms, which were developed under the New Public Management efforts, to economical and institutional theories that scientifically support the necessity for new ways of governance. It becomes clear that the evolution of eDemocracy is an outcome of diverse political and economical influences and that eDemocracy can substantiate efforts to re-invent governmental work processes. The first part of this thesis is based on an extensive literature research from various academic disciplines, including Economics, Institutional Theory, Information Technology and Political Studies. Sources for the theoretical part come from academic literature, academic journals and documents retrieved from the World Wide Web. The theories examined and the conclusions drawn upon these theories serve the purpose to gain a deeper understanding for the need to reform the public sector and to improve its outcomes. Further, those findings allow us to incorporate eDemocracy into the eGovernment and eGovernance efforts, which are aimed to digitize governmental work processes. The model developed in part one acts as a benchmark for the examination of current public online engagement efforts on a European-wide level. The European Commission s web site, http://europa.eu.int, is scrutinized, in order to examine the current level of design and operability of the Commission s efforts in engaging the public in decision- and policy-making. For the evaluation of the success of these efforts, insights gathered from a personal interview with officials from the Interactive Policy Making team of the European Commission are incorporated. Additionally, online documents on the European Commission s official web site are examined that substantiate the Commission s intent to promote eDemocracy efforts and to make online engagement tools more accessible and more effective in the [...]
