About our facilitator

About the seminar
This 3-week seminar is loosely organized into weekly topics:
1. Introduction to e-learning research: What is it? Where are we?
2. Narrative: What is the case for narrative methods in e-learning research?
3. Critical Theory: How can methodologies associated with critical theory contribute to the field of e-learning research?
If you're waiting for your book to arrive in the mail as I am, you'll be glad to know that several chapters, and related papers are available for download from the seminar wiki. (thanks Norm!)
