Phillip Hearn Doctorate


Dr. Phillip Hearn graduated last December from Union University with a Doctor of Education in Higher Education/ Education Leadership. The title of his dissertation was "Examining the Difference in Student Achievement Between Face-to-Face and Online Computer Classes."

‘My research included a population of over 5000 students who took INFS 1010 Computer Applications class at Vol State between 2012 and 2016,” Hearn said. “The results of this research showed that there was no statistically significant difference in the Gail Score (Pretest vs Posttest) for Face-to-Face and Online for the sample population as a whole, nor for Male vs. Female, or Traditional vs. Non-traditional students. As there is much ongoing debate today about the superiority of these competitive formats, this research speaks favorably for equivalency of student achievement and effectiveness of faculty delivery in this course for both presentation methods.”

Congrats to Dr. Hearn!
