Monthly Online DE Coordinators Meeting
No I hear it
No I hear it as well
there are lots of open mics
Comments were very helpful.
There are so many things that literature shows can contribute to success, how was that one thing selected?
Can you share more what is in mind by “specific distance education delivery method”
How “specific” is specific there?
I think it's deliberately "vague" enough to allow each district to interpret it in a way that coincides with their own policies and processes
Is this different from OEI joining?
@DE can you be more specific in your question?
The word “specific” doesn’t seem very vague
@Jim - LOL, perhaps. I think the idea was that if someone was teaching a hybrid course that they are prepared to teach in that format, for example
Is the grant seperate from OEI?
Has the link to the survey been sent?
@Art it was
from Erin Larsen
Do you have any information on the next round of commenting on the proposed title 5 changes in terms of timing and mechanism? I think there is interest in our academic senate providing a collective input but I’m not sure if/how that would work.
Is the survey for 2017-18?
do we have the results from last years survey?
It is the same as the OEI. The Chancellor's Office is required to rebid grants every 5 years.
@Jim I don't, but I remember conversation that it was going to be presented to the AS
If “specific delivery method” refers to hybrid vs. fully online, it would be nice if that were clearer. I don’t think most people would interpret “delivery method” as referring to the DE format of the class.
I have another question to Erin is the grant different from OEI application?
@CCC DECO it was presented at Plenary last weekend, and there was a resolution in support that passed. sign
I received it . Thank you.
@Jim good to know!
(that was to Erin's announcement)
I also discussed these proposed changes with the Chancellor's Office Curriculum Committee this morning.
How did that go?
What's the earliest the BOG might approve the changes?
@Scott - hoping LeBaron can answer that...
It went well there were questions about among students and addendums
@Jim will be happy to hear that :)
Can you tell us how many will be joining?
@Julie, we are keeping it a surprise until Tuesday at 9 am :)
Sorry, Wednesday at 9 am :)
Are we going to be informed officially before Wednesday?
Can you put the link again?
The primary contact person listed on the self-application packet received an email from us yesterday with the date, time, and URL.
Do you provide the stipend to all faculty? What if they were already teaching and wanted to update skills?
How many times can they do training?
Can you share the details of the training (what topics are covered, weekly timeline, etc.)?
Yes, that would helpful.
I agree. We are in the process of creating a similar training.
??? How do both training programs handle accessibility? Does someone say “yup, this course is accessible!”?
It's part of our training
The syllabus for our training: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1B4qBmcyqRuDPhj_rTRuiD4lf8JeArYTilyfU3urkT1k/edit?usp=sharing
are faculty required to hand over their course to the institution if it is to be taught by another faculty member?
I’m curious about how strict the policy is. Are all faculty required to pass training before teaching online without exception?
can you paste link to exhibit N plz
Were there rolling requirements for certification? I’m imagining that trying to certify all faculty currently teaching online—all at once—isn’t feasible. I’m curious how either college implemented this kind of requirement.
Start with an application to a cohort. We took 20. It was competitive. Then people start wanting it. We give out certificates "Master Online Instructor." It's become a thing. Over time, your faculty get trained.
thank you everyone!
We take applications from faculty and it turns out the numbers are manageable.
