Face-to-Face to On-Line: Addressing the Concerns of the Faculty

Faculty who have never taught an on-line course before find the prospect of delivering an entire program on-line to be daunting. Many identify impediments, both real and perceived, that challenge the department chair or director introducing the program. The concerns range from an anti-on-line attitude to concerns about quality and accreditation, from a fear of learning new technology to claims of increased workload. This talk looks at some of the common issues that arise and provides the perspective of a faculty member who has made the transition from face-to-face to on-learning.
