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” context to introduce the 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, therefore, 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.
