We hope to map students’ dialogic behaviour as a function of age, gender, academic discipline, socio-economic background, etc. 2. The cross-cultural aspects of dialogic behaviour. We have found that western students, both distance and campus-based, tend to study and learn alone. Students turned to interpersonal dialogue in order to resolve some specific difficulty. From informal meetings with colleagues, it seems that eastern cultures adhere to group learning. We suggest comparing the dialogic behaviour of students from diverse cultures and backgrounds in order to discover, what, if any, aspects of learning are universal.
These research questions are all interrelated in a single unified theory that assumes instruction is dialogue. To conclude, we’re talking about building working models for all instructional systems in the cognitive domain based on dialogues and resources. We believe that such an endeavour, based on valid qualitative and quantitative research, will advance our field to new levels. indd 32 • accessible elements 14/12/09 5:39 PM REFERENCES Anderson, T.

The type, extent, and quality of intrapersonal dialogue that occurs in any given course or instructional system is related to variables that characterize learners (age, prior knowledge, motivation, learning styles, perceived course difficulty, and other possible variables that define the student’s predisposition toward learning) and variables that characterize structural resources, especially their usability and quality.
