Enhancing Online Teaching Quality: Opportunities, Successes, and Challenges

Posted on 1/17/2017 3:54:09 PM

All faculty and TAs are invited to this CTE Large Group meeting on Wednesday, January 25, 2017, from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. in the HUB Monongahela Room.

The Eberly College was one of the early adopters of online education. The entire business core of 11 courses that every business student has to take has been online for nearly 15 years. Eberly also launched the post-baccalaureate online degrees in management and marketing over 10 years back. Several major-level courses are also online and, in a couple of majors, all the courses can be completed online. At the MBA level, several courses can be offered online, and all the courses in the Executive MBA Program are offered in a hybrid format (50 percent face-to-face and 50 percent online).

Over the years, the college has discussed and implemented several strategies to enhance the quality of online teaching with moderate success. The Eberly faculty on this panel have been involved in online teaching for a long time and will provide their experiences from not only a teacher's perspective, but also from that of department chairs and the dean's associate.

RSVPs are not necessary. Refreshments will be provided.
