Smith, Vernon C.
New Directions for Community Colleges, n150 p43-55 Sum 2010
Describing an online faculty member or community college faculty member may soon be synonymous. The role of the online faculty and the knowledge and skills associated with the growth of online course enrollments are transforming the nature and characteristics of community college faculty as a profession. To accomplish these tasks, an online community college faculty member must master new skills that incorporate new technologies and new instructional assumptions and strategies. This chapter identifies the essential tasks, skills, and knowledge that online community college faculty members need to master as a profession in a dynamic time of change, including the online course production models that enhance or detract from that mastery.
