Web-Enhanced Instruction: A Mixed Bag Contradictions and Possibilities for Doctoral Education
by Carol A. Mullen in Academic Leadership. This paper offers a summative assessment of a web-enhanced doctoral course taught in an educational leadership program at a Florida research university. This study extends the current focus in the distance learning literature on undergraduate and masters education. By widening this scope, awareness can be fostered of the need to study distance learning as an emerging trend for doctoral education. Results obtained from original instruments highlight contradictions and possibilities of student development via distance learning. Lessons learned and recommendations for improving hybrid approaches to doctoral education are provided.
