Virtual Interactive Action Learning (VIAL) Circles: Using LEAP, Presenter, Coach, and Facilitator Models as E-Focus Group Framework for Conceptualizing Measurable Actions of Democratic Association in Higher Education
Purpose: This online workshop session was held on May 28, 2017, via Adobe-Connect Global Meet Web Audio Conferencing to introduce participants to the theoretical and pragmatic framework of a new model that I called “virtual interactive action learning (VIAL) circles.” The participants were doctoral students working on their action research and program evaluation dissertation projects. I introduced the VIAL model as an innovative practice-based collaborative strategy for facilitating e-focus group interactive data collection process. Given its democratic power structure, the VIAL circles framework is deemed suitable for the e-focus group interactive data collection process because it provides a non-threatening learning environment for freedom in dynamic discourse that can aid in obtaining information-rich data of participants’ worldviews.
