Proposal Abstract

There is now an array of research that concludes almost equally in three different ways. First, a set of papers indicates online teaching is not as effective as in-class teaching. Second, another set of papers indicates online teaching is as effective as in-class teaching. Third, last set of papers indicates online teaching is more effective than in-class teaching. We enter the debate developing a perspective based on different learning levels. We find that the inclusion of learning levels clears the picture greatly and opens avenues for the scholarship of teaching and learning along paths not trodden in this literature so far. The discussion will yet encourage the audience to contribute ideas on how assessment instruments can be designed to gauge student performance at different learning levels.
