Most definitely. In fact, we used the CoI framework for professional development when Dr. Norm Vaughan did his doctorate on the subject. The following will provide an introduction to this work. Vaughan, N., & Garrison, D. R. (2005). Creating cognitive presence in a blended faculty development community. Internet and Higher Education, 8(1), 1-12. Also check out the new edition of our ...

The easy answer is that they cannot be easily separated; they overlap in the Venn diagram. According to the diagram and theory, each can have differing influence on the educational experience (dependent variable however it is defined). Off the top I suppose that the correlation among the presences will depend on the particular context which may explain the learning dynamic. Causality may be explored but the ...

Will try to look into this. Thank you for the suggestion.

Hi Audrey, Although I had researched self-directed/regulated learning early in my career, it was a research project by another scholar that suggested integrating a self-directed learning element into the CoI framework that precipitated our work on self and co-regulation. I found a couple of fundamental issues with this approach. The following article should give you some sense of how this evolved. I also have a ...

Hi everyone I have recently begun collecting data using the Metacognition Survey, with a 5 point likert scale (strongly disagree to strongly agree). I am interested in exploring how much awareness students have of their own regulation of learning on their Distance learning programme. The programme is aimed at Medical Educators. I would be interested in hearing from others who may have conducted similar ...

Devine, My apologies for not checking the discussion board sooner. There is considerable evidence regarding the learning effectiveness when following the principles of the CoI framework. I would suggest checking out some of the editorials. I am currently working on an editorial that addresses this topic. Perhaps others can be more specific. DRG

Eva & Annette, Thank you so much for sharing this and congratulations on a thoughtful article. This is invaluable in addressing this issue regarding Lipman and the CoI framework. Moreover, I think you have been more than fair in your assessment of critical thinking in the context of the CoI framework. For me, CT provided a broader context and starting point. We did not do the hard work of providing direct links to ...

Your teachers are welcome to register in DCOI up to the final day of the MOOC, April 15, 2023. After that date, however, registration will be closed. The MOOC will have a weekly schedule of topics, but the materials and discussions from earlier weeks remain open, and late arrivals can catch up. Anyone who registers by April 15 will also have read-only access to the materials after that date - so if you can get your ...

Yes - because learning is so complex and so intangible, we'll likely never be able to approach it directly, so it might be useful to see each theory as trying to approach it from a different perspective, with its own beliefs, values, and goals. The CoI framework, for example, could be interpreted as trying to integrate three different perspectives on the central idea of an "educational experience", and how these ...

Do you think that the 3 elements of CoI need to be explained in model which explain the correlation or causality? For examples, whether CP is as a dependent variable for TP and SP. Or is it that CP, TP and SP cannot be separated in ...

Perhaps use other examples of indicators from the CoI elements? To be more specific i would suggest using the questionnaire items to begin to generate corresponding indicators. Conversely we used indicators from each of the three elements to help generate CoI questionnaire ...

Thank you for your response. Do you have any suggestions on where to start?

Good point. I would strongly encourage you to take this on. I would be pleased to contribute where I can but I am retired and not in a position to initiate such a task. DRG

I'm interested in the evolution of the framework and the changes it's undergone from its first inception in 2000 to how it was illustrated in the third edition of E-Learning in the 21st Century (2017). Specifically the addition of the outermost circle and the shift from "selected content" to "regulated learning". Are ...

What tools do you suggest if we want to qualitatively know about the dynamics of shared metacognition? Compared with the CoI construct, it didn't have any indicators yet.

Greetings from Indonesia! My name is Triatmoko. I'm a Ph.D. student at Universitas Indonesia. I've known the CoI framework for quite some time. My master's thesis uses CoI as a basis for intervention, to support higher education student's critical thinking development. I hope to study more about CoI for my Ph.D ...
