Dr. Emory has tasked our DL Advisory Team to develop a value statement, performance standard, and assessment for the basic level of technology and instructional design skills that ALL teaching faculty should have at CCC. Once developed this will be incorporated into faculty performance appraisals. This is something SACS will be looking at very closely across the board at CCC for not only online faculty, but all teaching faculty at CCC. I suggest there be a staff component of this value statement, performance standard and assessment as well without the instructional design component. This will certainly include internet navigation, a basic understanding of Blackboard and computer skills.
I am asking Pre-Ah Hill to chair this subcommittee made up of Susan Hopkins, Brad Nicholajsen and Kim McGinnis. I will need a rough draft of this by May 11th. I will leave it to Pre-Ah to coordinate meeting times to get this accomplished.
Please post the rough draft of this 3 part technological requirement to this blog on or before May 11th.
Please feel free to make comments below this post for clarification or if you have any questions concerning this important task Dr. Emory has given this committee.
