The Faculty Perspective Regarding Their Role in Distance Education Policy Making
Maguire, Loreal
Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration, v12 n1 Spr 2009
Many times distance education policy is created after an institution has already begun offering online courses and programs. In addition, faculty members may be left out of the discussions about and creation of distance education policy, yet expected to willingly teach online courses. A recent study exploring faculty perceptions of the distance education policy development process found a strong interest of faculty in having a role in the development of that policy. Furthermore, the results of the study provide contextual effects on faculty participation in the policy development process which inform distance learning administrators with program planning.
