Impediments to Faculty Engaging in Web-Based Instruction: Clarification of Governing Policies
Association for Educational Communications and Technology, 27th, Chicago, IL, Oct 19-23, 2004
An exploratory study was conducted with faculty and administrators at Historically Black College and Universities (HBCUs) to determine the level of reported knowledge and experience with policies that govern Web-based instruction (WBI). Result indicated that faculty had little experience with the policies and many had not participated in policy development. Lack of communication of the policies was also reported to be a barrier to participation. Recommendations on policy information adoption and dissemination were made based on the findings of the study.
