Abstract:
Faculty Challenges and Opportunities: Developing and Teaching Web-based Courses
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001

P.I. Institution Name:University of Vermont
Educational programs throughout the world have adopted the use of the World Wide Web to enhance teaching and information delivery. The Web has many advantages including the convenience of accessing course materials at a distance, both geographically and temporally, from the faculty member. While the issues and advantages are known for students, what faculty issues must be addressed for successful curriculum transformation? Faculty challenges inherent in curricula change include readiness, skill set, and time for adaptation of course content. To successfully teach in an on-line environment, the faculty member must desire the change from a traditional classroom environment. In addition, the tools necessary for the transformation must be available. Lastly, transition time for consultation and course development must be provided. This presentation will address the faculty experience of transforming an undergraduate research course from one previously taught in the classroom to an on-line course. The evolution of the course and concomitant development of faculty expertise will be described. Additionally, results of a research project that investigated faculty perceptions of on-line teaching will be presented. The influences on the faculty member's decision to adapt curricula, as well as the experiences involved in course development will be presented. This presentation will also provide an analysis of the issues surrounding delivery and evaluation of on-line courses.
