How does this publication help with your research goals and/or interests?
“This study built on my previous studies about multi-dimensional learner engagement in the context of computer-supported collaborative learning to create a leader identification model. The study helped me to apply theoretical and methodological findings from my previous works to the specific research need: learning leader identification.”
Summarize your topic:
“This study aims to: (a) conceptualizing learning leadership in the context of online asynchronous discussions, (b) proposing a Leader Identification Method (LIM), and (c) testing the proposed method by using empirical data on how learning leaders behave differently from their peers in terms of behavioral, cognitive, and emotional engagement. Assuming that learning leaders emerge from social interactions in online discussions and drawing on the literature on leadership and social network analysis, we conceptualized three types of learning leadership roles: full facilitator, transactional facilitator, and attractive facilitator.”
