Dear CNIE Member,
We invite you to the October CIDER session, the second session of special ten-part Community of Inquiry Webinar Series. This free, online session will feature Madelaine Befus, a doctoral student at Athabasca University.
Title: Meta-analysis of the COI Framework
This presentation will focus on exploring the shape and scope of the corpus of CoI research literature. The Community of Inquiry Research Integration and Practice Alliance recently completed phase one of an applied meta-analysis of 73 quantitative and mixed-methods empirical studies using the CoI survey tool.
Preliminary results of this study confirm the CoI framework continues to resonate with post-secondary educational researchers. Separate and on-going doctoral dissertation research to explain and define the phenomena and influence of the CoI framework on education that brings further definition to this expansive and rapidly expanding body of literature will be shared.
An advance reading for this session is available at our website:
When: Wednesday, October 1, 2014 – 11am to 12noon Mountain Time (Canada)
