Introducing Online Learning at a Small College through a Faculty Learning Community
Long, Lori K.; Janas, Debra L.; Kay, Lalene; August, Cassandra
Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration, v12 n1 Spr 2009
As online learning in higher education continues to grow, the diversity of institutions offering such options also grows. However, small private institutions have been the slowest to adopt online learning (Allen & Seaman, 2006). The challenge for the smaller institution is often the lack of technological resources and support for faculty. The demand for online learning requires that smaller institutions find creative ways to successfully introduce online learning options. This paper examines the use of a Faculty Learning Community to introduce online learning at a small college and shares the outcomes of the process. (Contains 3 tables.)
