Abstract

The use of online technology in education continues to grow (Canadian Virtual University, 2012; Kanuka, 2008; White, Warren, Faughnan, & Manton, 2010) and student engagement is critical to their successful achievement of educational goals It is therefore valuable for educators to understand how to support student engagement in online environments As self-assessment has the potential to increase student engagement (Kearney, 2013), a component of the final grade in an online master’s course was determined through the use of a student self-assessment log After the conclusion of the course, students completed a survey in which they reflected on how the log affected their feelings of engagement with peers and with their instructor This presentation will discuss the study findings, including the sense of responsibility to others, social participation, and motivation, and will conclude with recommendations on how to include self-assessment of participation in graduate-level courses
