Online learning holds the potential to transform higher education; however, in order to do so, it is essential to change culture. We'll share research and best practices for creating cultural change by leveraging the transformative influence of online instruction. We will examine strategies for establishing faculty learning communities and providing systems to support faculty in understanding the pedagogical value of technology in order to facilitate change. We'll also look at increasing competence in online instruction as well as including faculty knowledge of specific technology-based skills that are essential to meaningful transformation. Join us to look at practices in change management and learning theory that can help address the skepticism about online pedagogy and reduce faculty resistance to change.
