Abstract

This study focus on the structure of student engagement in asynchronous threaded discussions over 1,500 posts and its relationship to student achievement in a hybrid STEM course Calculus I offered at Georgia Gwinnett College over four semesters from the Fall semester 2010 to the Spring semester of 2012. While the content of these courses differ, they share common goals: To foster a deep understanding of critical content in each discipline; and to promote the development of scientific communication and collaboration concepts, skills. Outside of regular class periods, students are required to participate in an ongoing asynchronous dialogue using the Blackboard Discussions tool. The structure of the dialogue will be analyzed using social network analysis.
