Research output: ThesisDoctoral Thesis

Abstract

The quality of tertiary forensic science education has been under review In the USA, the UK and Australia. The aim of this study was to compare different delivery modes including face-to-face, blended and online mode. The research questions focused on the stakeholders' experiences, perceptions and outcomes of these delivery modes. Three stakeholders within Australia participated: tertiary forensic science students (N=110), and teachers (N=29) and forensic science industry personnel (N=31). This study used a pragmatic mixed methods approach and consisted of two parts; a national survey and a local case study. The majority of participants Identified blended mode as their preferred mode of delivery.
