Faculty Speak on the Impact of Time in Accelerated Courses
Johnson, Carrie
Journal of Continuing Higher Education, v57 n3 p149-158 2009
Eighteen faculty members participated in this qualitative study to determine the impact of reduced seat time in accelerated courses. The findings challenge critics who believe the accelerated delivery format compromises academic quality. The participants noted the importance of students in the learning process, emphasizing the significant workload outside of class. In addition, they described the high attendance rates and energy level that is typically sustained in accelerated courses. The participants learned to design their curriculum to focus on key learning outcomes.
