The explosion of online courses is culminating in new organizational models and instructional concepts in higher education. The new "virtual college" is managed by "virtual deans," and instruction is delivered by "virtual teachers." Characteristically, virtual college teachers deliver courses all online, may never meet their students, teach for multiple virtual colleges, and may never even see the institutions at which they teach. These changes have important implications for the nature, quality and management of instruction, and have far reaching impact and influence on all aspects of higher education.
Quantitative and qualitative research, and scholarly reflection which examines these phenomena is invited. Teaching online, part-time online adjuncts, instructional quality, the management of distance education programs, organizational structures in distance education organizations, faculty workload issues, policy issues, and the economic and social impact of these phenomena are all invited topics. Other related topics are also accepted.
Who May Submit:
Submissions are welcome from distance education administrators, full time and part time faculty teaching online, and others involved in the process of teaching or managing online courses. Please identify your submission with keyword: VIRTUAL
On-going submission requests with cut-off date set by issue publication month.
