|Seminar on administrators monitoring online courses is Feb. 13|
You are invited to attend an online seminar on "Administrators Monitoring Online Courses: A Gloves-Off Debate," from noon to 1 p.m. Friday, Feb. 13, in the River Valley Room, Memorial Union. One of the ongoing controversies at campuses across the country has been the ability of faculty to teach as their disciplines guide them without fear of administrative supervision or oversight. This has been especially true in distance education where online courses are especially easy to monitor covertly. If you are interested in gaining a deeper understanding of both sides of this issue, plan to attend this online learning seminar led by Michael Catchpole and James Olliver, two noted experts in this area. As a result of this informative exchange, you will gain additional insights on how to balance accountability and quality vs. academic freedom. Administrators, faculty, staff, and students are invited to attend. Bring your lunch; no RSVP is required. It is sponsored by the Division of Continuing Education.
