Abstract

The theme of the workshop concerns student satisfaction with a course studied by distance learning. The words “student satisfaction” have become a cliché but in the changing higher education environment institutions are striving to enhance the student experience as a means of raising students’ perception of their course and the institution. The workshop should appeal to practitioners who wish to find out more about enhancing the learning experience of distance learning students and how that contributes to student motivation and the student perception of their course. At the practical level, research about students’ expectations and teaching online can help inform our professional practice. This is a collaborative and interactive workshop, presented by a distance learning student (in person) and an academic. They bring their experience of a distance learning course that is evolving from “correspondence course” to wholly online. Workshop participants will be able to draw on their own knowledge and experience and contribute to devising practical ways of putting learners in the driving seat.
