E-Learning V. Traditional Learning for Research Paper

Excerpt from Research Paper :

The study showed that most students didn't consider e-learning as a benefit on campus; males who had previous experience with computers and students with positive attitudes about new technology were less positive to e-learning on campus that other students, overall.

3. Locate a mixed methods study that uses a theoretical lens, such as a feminist, ethical/racial, or class perspective. Identify specifically how the lens shapes the steps taken in the research process.

Fullerton's (2010) study looks at transformative learning, noting that the task that male and female students face in learning is to reframe and understand -- in a different way -- the world that they once knew. It is the transformation of meaning. Fullerton (2010) suggests that in order to be transformed via learning, the education needs to expose students to different and many opportunities for intentional learning through a formal academic curriculum, student life, and community based and global experiences.

Looking at Fullerton's (2010) definition of learning, how can e-learning offer student life and community-based and/or global experiences? That is, how can e-learning offer transformative learning? While students may have a preference toward one way of learning (e-learning vs. traditional) based on their own subjective ideas, race, gender, and SES, it is up for debate whether or not -- e-learning can equate with transformative learning.
