Supporting Teaching and Learning Via the Web: Transforming Hard-Copy Linear Mindsets into Web-Flexible Creative Thinking.
Borkowski, Ellen Yu; Henry, David; Larsen, Lida L.; Mateik, Deborah
This paper describes a four-tiered approach to supporting University of Maryland faculty in the development of instructional materials to be delivered via the World Wide Web. The approach leverages existing equipment and staff by the design of Web posting, editing, and management tools for use on the campus-wide information server, "inforM" (a central Web site), and training the trainer instructional modules. Key faculty and staff are identified, and assessment of skills and needs is conducted. Individualized support packages are designed using part, or all, of the four-tiered approach: (1) data entry, scanning, converting and formatting of documents; (2) short course training in the use of the Web and HTML, forms-driven posting and editing tools, and electronic publication and evaluation skills; (3) faculty-focused training and mentoring in instructional technology and pedagogy; and (4) integrated use of cutting edge teaching theaters with continuous instructional technology support staff.
