A Practical Guide to the Implementation of an External Degree Program.
Shay, Linda J.
A framework is needed to follow in implementing external degree programs. External degree programs meet the needs of individuals who cannot meet the time and space commitments of regular on-campus college classes. They differ from correspondence courses in the delivery system, student support services, and credibility of the learning experience. But in order to reach the needs of the diverse population, innovative methods of higher educational instruction and assessment need to be developed. Interested individuals need to seek the assistance of programs that have been in existence. In this way, new programs will be able to apply the experiences of other programs to their surroundings. The result will be more widespread initial support, and an emphasis on effective planning, and deemphasis on problem solving. (Author/KE)
