Perceptions of Barriers Concerning Effective Online Teaching and Policies: Florida Community College Faculty
Haber, Jennifer; Mills, Michael
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v32 n4-6 p266-283 Apr 2008
This study's purpose was to examine the perceptions of Florida's full-time community college faculty members who teach by distance learning concerning the ten policy areas set forth by Berge and Muilenburg (2000). Focus group sessions indicated that faculty members felt certain barriers related to their online experiences. Faculty time and compensation, which deals with how much time faculty members spend and how much they are compensated, seemed to be the greatest barrier while access seemed to cause faculty members the least amount of concern. But factors such as training, size of the institutions, and complexity of the programs seemed to play a role in their perceptions.
