Enhancing On-Line Teaching and Learning – Learners’ Feedback for A Strategic Management Module
In an ODL setting, engaging learners become very challenging especially for those who have not been exposed to this type of learning before. Many people assume that because most ODL students are adult learners, they are independent and can easily survive on their own. However, high attrition rates, high failure rates and the small number of learners who actually graduate with high academic performance tend to negate this assumption. The question thus arises of how we can enhance our teaching and learning and assist learners in their studies. What can be done to engage them and help them understand their subject matter better? What would attract them and get them to apply the principles that they have learned? What can be done to increase their critical thinking skills so that they would be able to meet expectations? What would help them learn better in their limited available time? This research focuses on these questions by using a strategic management module as a testing ground to get feedback from learners in OUM Business School. A group of learners were given access to the module and the feedback received analysed using thematic analysis. Results of the study show what learners prefer and what could be better improved to enhance teaching and learning in the university. // Paper ID 565
