Title:
Developing and Nurturing a Vision to Transform Traditionally Taught to On-line Courses: An Administrative Perspective
Abstract:
Developing and Nurturing a Vision to Transform Traditionally Taught to On-line Courses: An Administrative Perspective
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Botter, Mary, PhD
P.I. Institution Name:University of Vermont
Title:Assistant Professor
The University of Vermont is located in a rural state with over 50% of practicing RNs holding a diploma or AD in nursing. In 1997 the RN-BS program was extensively revised to provide flexibility for RNs wishing to pursue their BS degree. With a wealth of experience in the use of interactive TV (ITV) to deliver graduate courses, the initial plan was to use this technology to offer the RN-BS program to RNs across the state. However, increased competition for ITV sites necessitated the exploration of other distance technologies. This presentation will describe developing and nurturing a shared vision to transform the RN-BS program to one that is completely web-based. Administrative challenges related to faculty learning, selection of courses for on-line delivery, selection of courseware, technical support, students and technology, and budgetary considerations will be identified. The strategies used to address these challenges, and at times convert them in to opportunities for the School of Nursing, faculty and students, will be discussed.
