Abstract

This paper explores the application of the bioecological theory of human development to online learning and teaching. Bioecological theory advocates that by strengthening human relationships within supportive environments it is possible to increase the extent of development realised into positive outcomes. Likewise through strengthening human connectedness in supportive online learning environments, it is possible to increase the extent of learning realised into positive outcomes. In online learning environments, developing strategies that facilitate engagement is a key to strengthening learning outcomes. Through understanding the processes that inspire human development, our understanding of the processes that inspire online learning are advanced.
