Article Title: The Role of Intrinsic Goal Orientation, Self-Efficacy, and E-Learning Practice in Engineering Education (link connects to article abstract)

Spoiler: The study found that supplemental e-learning activities improved the academic performance of engineering students.
I was an e-learning developer for the Materials Science & Engineering program at Boise State University for a couple of years. My position was funded by a National Science Foundation grant. The grant funded a study to determine whether supplementing an introductory engineering class with e-learning activities would help students learn.
Good news – it did!
During those two years, I was assigned engineering textbook chapters and tasked with designing and developing key content into e-learning activities. We tracked students’ use of those activities and their class performance.
And this study is the subject of a recently published paper called The Role of Intrinsic Goal Orientation, Self-Efficacy, and E-Learning Practice in Engineering Education. I know…it’s a mouthful. But that’s how it works with academic articles.
The article was just published in The Journal of Effective Teaching.
FYI – This is published under my maiden name, Berg.
