UCF's Support for Teaching and Learning Online: CD-ROM Development, Faculty Development, and Statewide Training.
Truman-Davis, Barbara; Futch, Linda; Thompson, Kelvin; Yonekura, Francisca
The University of Central Florida (UCF) has developed an award winning faculty development program providing experiential, collaborative learning for instructors to build online programs. A project is now underway to extend training throughout the state of Florida. Supporting students is also essential to the success of teaching online. The Pegasus Connections Disc provides software tools, tutorials, and just-in-time information for all incoming UCF students and faculty. This paper describes four areas of readiness: institutional, faculty, course development, and learner-oriented that contribute to UCF's comprehensive approach to development and support of online learning. UCF's experience is now being extended to other institutions in Florida through a statewide training project. Lessons learned and evaluation data are shared in this paper. (Author/AEF)
