We had 17 colleges represented at this years Eastern Regional Conference @ Carteret Community College with a total of 58 participants at the college and another 40 participating in the 3 webinars that were done live during 3 sessions. The 3 presentations are linked below. More will be linked as I get them. Feel free to post your comments, concerns, issues and observations about the CHALLENGES we as faculty are facing in 2011 and beyond.
You can also address a variety of issues directly related to the new roles, demands and expectations on college faculty members in 2011. Most college faculty no longer teach 100% of the time in the traditional classroom environment. Course management systems like Moodle and Blackboard have empowered teachers and students alike with a variety of new options, applications and communication tools for delivering and receiving viable and dynamic instruction. Most instructors no longer have to be at any given place (office or classroom)) thanks to wireless communications and applications like skype, Blackboard, Moodle and Elluminate when teaching their classes, however many of the traditional 20th Century expectations are still applied to online faculty by college administrators. Faculty are also expected to check-in to their online classes over weekends and on holidays with no additional compensation and spend countless hours developing, retooling and upgrading their online courses. The role of faculty is changing (evolving) rapidly and this webinar will be a conversation about these changes and offer suggestions for adapting (surviving) in the world of e-learning.
