Undergraduate Student Socialization and Learning in an Online Professional Curriculum
Innovative Higher Education Volume 33, Number 4, ISSN 0742-5627
Using data collected from a qualitative case study of an online baccalaureate nursing program, we examined the influence of online degree programs on undergraduate student socialization and learning. We considered how components of socialization--knowledge acquisition, investment, and involvement--are influenced by the online context. The findings suggest the importance of considering non-academic influences in regards to nontraditional student experiences. The theoretical intersection of online learning and undergraduate student development offers new and significant areas of research, specifically related to the pedagogical role of faculty and the impact of social engagement. Implications for future research and practice are offered.
