September Distance Learning Team Update

On September 15, 2015, the Distance Education Team met. One of the many accomplishments of the meeting was to provide several Tips for the website. One tip they put forth advises distance education instructors to avoid cognitive overload by “chunking” content into manageable sizes. In order to ensure this, instructors could have a colleague outside their discipline see if pages of content seem reasonable. More tips from this team will be on the website soon. The team also provided a list of retention practices that will be added to a spreadsheet being compiled by the Steering Team. Finally, the team reviewed and made some changes to the survey they plan to send to students who have taken distance courses. The Distance Education team plans to meet again on October 20.
