Abstract

This study is intended to further inform the construct of online pedagogical praxis and paradigm for students’ meaningful learning and approaches to higher order thinking in the online environment. Although research has been conducted on the creation and administration of online courses, more is specifically needed in teacher-education in order to create the most optimum online learning environments. So much of the educational literature places emphasis on student outcomes of higher order thinking and meaningful learning, we feel it is imperative to examine what is being done in teacher preparedness to both experience these learning outcomes as well as understand how to create learning environments conducive to these types of outcomes.
