Abstract

In North Carolina the community college system has seen a 301% increase in Internet course enrollments over the last three years. Currently more than 53,000 students are enrolled in distance learning through the community college system. With the number of online courses is increasing, it is the faculty teaching those courses who hold the key to whether or not it will be a successful learning experience for the students. Faculty may need to learn new teaching styles and develop different instructional methods to better serve the online learner; this may be difficult as community college instructors are more likely to be trained in content areas rather than in instructional methods. This session will present the instructional development process of preparing community college instructors to teach online. In addition, questions concerning application to various subject areas, and what faculty members feel administrators need to know will be presented.
