Abstract

Intensive course formats have long been used with adult learners as one way of combining intensive learning in a field of study with the time constraints of adult, professional people. The University of Southern Mississippi, as part of its Title III-A five-year grant project, launched a one-week intensive program for faculty, entitled "Putting Your Course Online" Workshop; participants were fondly referred to (in publicity, listservs, and on this film as "pioneers." In return a week of their time and lots of their hard work, ten faculty members got the opportunity to participate in an intensive hands-on learning environment, resulting in their having the skeleton of an online course - and $500 cash. This video saga will take watchers through the first two years of this experience and will demonstrate that, once again, "culture" (that of both the institution and of the workshop itself) plays a huge role in helping learning to happen.
