Presentation title
Fostering technology driven autonomous learning via the PAH continuum: a case study
Presentation abstract
The COVID-19 Pandemic triggered the global shift in terms of how education is delivered at all levels including postgraduate study. Overnight, everyone had to embrace online technology driven learning solutions. This paper will discuss an initiative put forward by a private university in Malaysia to help foster autonomous learning among their postgraduate students via the online Pedagogy-Andragogy and Heutagogy (PAH) Continuum whereby learners are taken from full dependence to independence via Open and Distance Learning (ODL). It was enhanced by Computer-Mediated Communication (CMC) in both synchronous and asynchronous settings involving the use of video conference platforms, learning management system (LMS) and instant messaging platforms. This quasi-experimental study was conducted with 50 postgraduate students to enhance their competencies in critical reading, academic writing, and research skills. Data for the study were collected via a three-pronged approach involving tests, questionnaires, and semi-structured interviews. Findings revealed positive results in enhancing students’ competencies in reading and research skills, but academic writing skills left much to be desired. Success in full autonomy was hindered for some students due to personal and cultural factors. The paper will also share the implications of the findings and recommendations for further enhancement of the initiative.
