This session will be of interest to faculty and staff interested in seeing new ways of building and sustaining not only blended courses, but also entire blended degree programs. It will also be of interest to people who are offering or considering offering online or blended programs in areas of professional practice, especially those areas that are accredited by regional or national review organizations. The issue lurking behind the verbiage here is sometimes called "equivalency," the process and rules by which accrediting organizations (governmental or private) decide whether blended or online programs are "equivalent" to their traditionally offered classroom counterparts. I believe this issue hasn’t been seriously discussed in the brown bag series before.
Everyone is welcome to attend. (Presented by : Paul Freddolino and his colleagues in the MSU School of Social Work)
