A Model Manual for Telecourse Faculty.
Klink, William R.
In an attempt to aid telecourse faculty with various aspects of administering telecourses, Charles County Community College (CCCC), in La Plata, Maryland, has produced a manual designed to foster coherence in telecourse instruction. Introductory material explains that the manual is distributed on disk so that can be updated easily and discusses the place of telecourses in CCCC's curriculum. Subsequent sections focus on: (1) the process by which decisions about which telecourses to offer are made; (2) the characteristics of telecourse students; (3) instructor responsibilities for submitting grades and keeping attendance records, developing a complete course syllabus, and following other academic procedures of the college; (4) attendance requirements for course orientation sessions; (5) orientation session activities, such as reviewing the syllabus, establishing that students have completed prerequisites, and fostering networking for group work; (6) standard forms; (7) pay; (8) ways of conducting the course; and (9) course evaluation, including the telecourse evaluation survey. Finally, the manual presents a sample telecourse syllabus, which provides information about the instructor, a course description, logistical information, and material on assignments and grading.
