Technology-enabled Delivery and Assessment Methods: are we addressing student expectations and learning preferences?

Tennent, Beth, Becker, Karen L., & Kehoe, Jo (2005) Technology-enabled Delivery and Assessment Methods: are we addressing student expectations and learning preferences? In Goss, Halima (Ed.) Australasian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education (ASCILITE), 4-7 December, Brisbane, Australia.


The role and importance of technology in an educational environment is growing and changing at a rapid pace. This technology has the potential to address many deficiencies of more traditional educational models, but also has accompanying potential drawbacks. As educators, we are balancing on a daily basis, differing expectations of our students (particularly across the generations), changing societal norms in relation to the balancing of work/life and education, and the turbulent landscape of resource allocation and focus in the tertiary education sector. This study provides insights into student perceptions and expectations in three large, cross-discipline courses, each using different forms of technology-enabled delivery or assessment. In particular, the study considers individual students’ learning styles and whether this impacts their preference for, or expectations and experiences of technology-enabled learning.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
