Abstract

Experienced e-learning faculty members share strategies for implementing a comprehensive faculty development program essential to the continued quality improvement of teaching skills and abilities. The high-impact model promotes information sharing, facilitates content creation, and fosters collaboration among a large geographically dispersed postsecondary faculty, and has as its goals increasing student satisfaction, promoting instructional quality, and motivating participants. Model components include individual mentoring, the use of Web 2.0 tools (such as a professional development blog focused on adult learning; an extensive resource wiki to assure great teaching; and, a self-check performance review tool shared between instructors and evaluators), and a rubric to guide the development of exemplary practice. Additional methods include the use of a peer-to-peer conferencing platform in which a six-part training series focusing on online teaching strategies is conducted.
