SEMINAR: August 14,  2013

The Magna Online Seminar, in collaboration with and sponsored by the Sloan Consortium, State Authorization: A Solution in Sight? will focus on the implications of SARA, the proposed national reciprocal model, and what the decision means for your institution’s efforts. We won’t dwell on court decisions or history but will look ahead at how this model is likely to play out.

Sloan-C Effective Practices: Submissions Now Open

Effective practices are peer reviewed to insure quality and to give submitters documentation for tenure and promotion files.   Sloan-C focuses on five pillars of quality (see framework and narrative) in online education: access, learning effectiveness, faculty satisfaction, student satisfaction, and scale (institutional commitment to achieve capacity enrollment via cost effectiveness).

You are encouraged  to submit your effective practices on any topic related to online education. Please share what has worked for you. Deadline for submissions is August 31, 2013.

Crisis situations in higher education are unpredictable and in many cases, very difficult to manage. Join the upcoming Sloan-C Workshop and develop a crisis communication plan that incorporates selected social media strategies at your institution as part of your overall institutional communication plan. You will have the chance to review examples of other communication plans and network with participants. Hope to see you in the workshop on August 16th!
