Factors that Predict Full-Time Community College Faculty Engagement in Online Instruction
Akroyd, Duane; Patton, Bess; Bracken, Susan

This study is a secondary quantitative analysis of the 2004 National Study of Postsecondary Faculty (NSOPF) data. It examines the ability of human capital, intrinsic rewards, extrinsic rewards, and gender/race demographics to predict full-time community college faculty teaching on-line courses. Findings indicate that those faculty with higher degree attainment were three times more likely to teach online. Faculty members who felt the institution supported teaching were 8% more likely to teach online, and faculty who taught general education courses were 25% less likely to teach online than their occupational/vocational counterparts. This data offers an important baseline for future work. Online course offerings trend upwards, with 50% of all online enrollments at two year institutions (Allen & Seaman, 2008).
