Pedagogical Reflections on a Blendede Learning Enviroment in Ghanaian Universities: A Formative Experiment Approach

Research output: ResearchPh.D. thesis

Abstract

Large enrolment of students in most African universities and its attendant problems have led to falling level of the quality of the university graduate in the area of Communication Skills, a skill that most employers value most in a university graduate seeking an employment.  Using formative experiment (Reinking & Watkins, 2000), this thesis explored the use of a blended learning environment named ABLECAT, to improve the students’ knowledge and skills in the course.  The result was the development of a local theory through the use of ‘motivate, explore, apply and review/assess’ design of the blended learning environment, for both the process of learning and means designed to support the learning of Communication Skills.
