The title of this research project is “,Student Evaluation Survey of Online Civic Engagement Courses.” The purpose of this project is collect qualitative responses from students on a series of questions about their C.E. courses. We want to assess the impact of an online approach to C.E. courses. Students will be invited to participate in an online chat in Blackboard Collaborate. Questions will be posed to them, and students will be encouraged to respond to one another as the discussion progresses. We are hoping to replicate a focus group protocol in an online course. This process will take under 30 minutes.
After transcribing and analyzing student responses we will review emerging themes and the identifying of particularly insightful comments. We will draw our conclusions at the end of each data collection.
