- Booth 1: Onboarding and community building: Using technology to enhance learner experience
The Link is a special community building and onboarding module that occurs at the start of each program in the School of Education and Technology (SET). Jo Axe and Elizabeth Childs incorporated tools to enhance the ability of learners to work more effectively both on teams and in the wider community. Jo and Elizabeth worked with B.J. and a research assistant to inventory, select, and pilot potential tools within The Link, and collect and analyze learner perceptions of their experiences. The research will enrich the learner experience by using technology to help build an inclusive and supportive team based learning environment.
