Education, Assistance, and Support Needed for Distance Delivery: Faculty and Administrators' Perceptions.
Schauer, Jolene; Rockwell, S. Kay; Fritz, Susan; Marx, Dave
This paper reports the results of a survey that addressed the type of preparation faculty at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln want to help them build appropriate teaching skills for distance education delivery. Specifically, it examined the type of education, assistance, and support faculty need to develop educational materials for distance delivery and differences in the way education, assistance, and support are viewed by various categories of teaching faculty and administrators. The 39 items listed on the survey were rated on a scale of 1-4 (very important to very unimportant); using the overall mean score, 13 items were classified as very important and 26 as somewhat important. A table of results is included. The discussion highlights the following groupings of survey items: (1) developing interaction; (2) developing instructional materials; (3) applying selected technologies; (4) curriculum content, design, and evaluation; (5) assistant help; (6) technologies; (7) logistics related to student services; (8) logistics related to overall policies; (9) peer support; and (10) workload composition. Also discussed are challenges for providing educational opportunities for the teaching faculty who expect to take on distance teaching within the next 2 to 5 years. (DLS)
