#BCM212 Research Proposal Update!

Hello everyone! Hope we are all well. This blog post is just a quick update for you all about my Research Project! So I have actually changed the question a bit to try and make it a bit more concise and it’s become just one question

How do current university students feel about the increase of technological engagement and online resources-including online submissions, and options relating to online ‘cloud’ courses in comparison to traditional physical campuses and assessments?

  • So my research is going reasonably well, I have had a few hiccups along the way with finding Australian sources, most of the articles I’m finding are American but a few strong Australian ones have come up and are assisting me in seeing how technology has become a factor in everyday life, I have seen some really interesting arguments from tutors points of views,not just students, which has got me really intrigued because this has a massive factor on the quality and reliability of online courses, which I have seen is a real concern for a lot of students and tutors who are considering using these alternatives.

 

  • As well as researching for academic articles, I have been using surveys (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GXNR5GZ— please feel free to complete it, if you have a chance), This has really helped me grasp a sense of honest students opinions and I have had some really amazing responses that have changed the way that I look at learning as well, which has really pleased me.

  • I have conducted some interviews that have further broadened my understanding on the concerns and opinions of students and has helped my skills as a researcher. I am hoping to conduct more as the time goes on and gain an even further understanding for my assessment which will help strengthen my project.

  Ultimately, I am slowly satisfying my curiosity with some of the answers I have been given, and have been pleasantly surprised by some, which is always awesome to see! Can’t wait to see more and complete this project!

 

 

Till next time, Amanda xoxox
