Toward a Framework for Evaluating Online Instruction in Higher Education
Warford, Mark K.
Journal of Educational Technology Systems, v42 n4 p333-353 Jun 2014
SUNY-wide, the online horse has left the gate. Meanwhile, campuses contend with traditional means for evaluating teaching effectiveness that do not match up against the latest standards for online instruction. Following a discussion of some of the core considerations that individual campuses need to address in responding to Open SUNY, the author proposes a model and rubrics aligned to the latest standards that center learner engagement, instructional materials, and technology on specific learning outcomes.
