With institutional pressures to grow online enrollments and meet retention goals, student learning outcomes, and accreditor demands, having faculty who are well versed in pedagogy, technology, accessibility issues, and management of online instruction and who are able to offer rigorous, engaging courses is a necessity and an ongoing challenge. In this interactive session, we will analyze our models for success, offering insight into what strategies continue to work well, which ones do not, and what "new" challenges are emerging, and engage participants in generating a rubric for evaluating their faculty preparation models.
