Designing an Orientation Program To Prepare Students for Distance Education Study.
Bowser, Don; Race, Ken
This paper describes the orientation program conducted for distance students at the University of Central Queensland in Queensland, Australia, and outlines the steps in developing and conducting such a program. Information is included on the rationale for the orientation program, program objectives, program design, including issues, location, staffing, timing, and evaluation; and student reaction, i.e., student participation rates and perceptions. A report on two surveys concludes that approximately 90 percent of the students participate in the program and that most students were satisfied with the program content; some suggestions were made to improve location and timing of orientation sessions.
