Elizabeth.Freeman@utas.edu.au

Dr Elizabeth Freeman is Senior Lecturer in Medieval European History, History and Classics Program, School of Humanities. She teaches a range of History units – mainly on different aspects of medieval European history, but also on Renaissance and Reformation history. She is also Associate Head, Learning and Teaching, for the School of Humanities. Her research interests focus on medieval Christianity, especially the monastic history of the High Middle Ages, and more particularly the Cistercian monastic order. Since publishing a book on Cistercian chronicles (2002), Dr Freeman has increasingly focused her research on the gendering of medieval monastic institutions – see for example her contribution to The Cambridge Companion to the Cistercian Order (2013).

Biography

Dr Freeman joined the University of Tasmania in 2001. Before that, she completed research and teaching qualifications at other universities (Melbourne; Australian Catholic University).

Current projects

Dr Freeman’s research into the medieval Cistercian order focuses on (1) broad processes of monastic institutionalisation across regions and centuries, (2) individual case studies of Cistercian communities and individuals, and (3) the interactions between the two. On the broad scale, she is researching the histories of Cistercian nuns in England between the twelfth and sixteenth centuries. At the more local scale, she is researching processes of religious formation of Cistercian nuns and monks, eg by studying literature of instruction written by abbots for religious women in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, and also by studying book holdings and reading practices within English nuns’ communities.

Student View: A pilot study into the student experience of online learning across disciplines (2018)$15,613
Description
As the growth in online higher education continues at UTAS and beyond, there are a number of important and timely questions about the ways online students engage with learning that have profound relevance to our College. This Hothouse application builds on existing research in the School of Education (SOE) that explores the learning experiences of online initial teacher education students. A systematic literature search (of 457 A1 articles) revealed that the majority of research on student experiences of online learning examines their experiences of a single technology (e.g., webconference/ facebook/ digital gaming) and is often captured at a single time point (e.g., end of semester via interview or exit survey). This review has revealed important gaps in the research literature, namely a need to: 1) interpret student experience more holistically across multiple units of study and 2) capture student voice over time.This Hothouse project will: collect online student-generated data (the Student View) collected periodically throughout semester; identify how, when, and why students engage with online learning in their units; compare engagement among units; and analyse patterns of engagement, for fully online units and blended delivery units.This project aligns with a number of other UTAS projects researching online higher education. The projects pioneering methodology will enable new modes of knowledge generation, increase our understanding of the student experience, improve student outcomes and retention, and support CALEs uptake of the UTAS Technology Enhanced Learning and Teaching White Paper, the UTAS Blended Learning Model and the UTAS Strategy on Open Educational Practice. For example, the project can specifically investigate whether or not our units consistently meet element 3 of the White Paper, mandating purposefully designed high impact learning experiences that enable them to achieve the learning outcomes of the unit and course.
