Burton, Sharon L.; Bessette, Dustin
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Cognition and Exploratory Learning in the Digital Age (CELDA) (Fort Worth, TX, Oct 22-24, 2013)
Being aware of what is absent in faculty development programs is important for practitioners and researchers so that they can create and advance programs, and support the development of knowledge, skills, and abilities for distance education instructors. Requests for distance education courses persist to grow at the college and university levels, as students and corporations push for more flexibility in education. Administrators emphasize the return on investment, while faculty members develop distance education courses. More and more faculty members are being prompted to facilitate in the distance education and online arena. This paper focuses on the current state of knowledge needed by facilitators to teach and deliver education using androgogical techniques and technologies. Additionally it emphasizes the need to understand the different types of available technologies and understand their applicability to facilitate learning. These technologies are becoming more and more important to facilitators and administrators as the Internet continues to energize educational deliveries. [For the full proceedings, see ED562107.]
