Logic Models as a Way to Support Online Students and Their Projects

Jesse Strycker, East Carolina University, Greenville, North Carolina, USA

Abstract

As online enrollment continues to grow, students may need additional pedagogical supports to increase their likelihood of success in online environments that don’t offer the same supports as those found in face to face classrooms. Logic models are a way to provide such support to students by helping to model project expectations, allowing students to demonstrate their current and changing understanding of relationships for different projects and instructors to review and comment on those understandings, and as a vehicle for reflecting on the outcomes of a project.
