Research Fellows

Sample Research Questions

GSOLE supports research into online literacy instruction, whether the literacy in question is reading, writing, or digital composition and especially if it combines any of those focal areas. Our research initiative brings to the forefront the need for scholars and teachers to perform research into online literacy instruction. We simply do not know enough about effective teaching practices that enable students to learn in online environments mediated through a variety of technologies. Putting a direct focus on research will enable us to support and encourage research projects that provide much needed data, information, and experiences into what works, or doesn’t, in online environments.
