Embracing difference by design with research and technologies in learning

    Abstract

    Greater diversity and larger student numbers in university classrooms expose students and teachers to different ways of thinking and being that enrich the university experience. The use of innovative pedagogic strategies that employ technology and research in learning and teaching are one response to such cohorts. The study details student use and evaluation of online research tasks where students act as participant-researchers and expert-reviewers. Study heuristics indicate how personalised applications of research that draw on socio-cultural technology preferences and voluntary completion by undergraduate and postgraduate learners, elicit heightened participation and deep learning, and personal, professional and academic learning development, to aid in the achievement of unit learning outcomes.
