Abstract

Hirumi's (2002) framework for planning and sequencing e-learning student interactions has two primary objectives. First, it is intended to help facilitators organize student interactions in an e-learning context and promote learning on identified course objectives. Second, the framework is offered as an instructional management device to limit excessive, unguided, and meaningless interactions. In this article, the authors report on their assessment of the framework and its capacity to accommodate critical student interactions in a graduate leadership curriculum delivered through hybrid e-learning technologies. Although Hirumi's framework may limit unnecessary interactions, it does not allow for the kind of interactions required in graduate leadership development programs. The framework is also limited in its ability to accommodate certain learning theories such as social constructivism. These shortcomings may be remedied, however, by proposed modifications to the framework.
