Recording from “Improving Student Retention in Online Courses” webinar

Improving Student Retention in Online Learning
Thursday, May 15, 2014 – 12:08pm

Online learning continues to grow and make up a larger percentage of enrollments in higher education. However, over the years, institutions often report higher attrition rates for online courses than traditional face-to-face courses. As enrollments in online courses increase and online learning becomes a larger part of institutions’ long-term planning, faculty and administrators are confronted with finding ways to improve retention in online courses and online programs. In this free webinar presented by Academic Partnerships, Patrick Lowenthal discusses the literature on attrition in online learning as well as various strategies used to improve student retention in online learning.

Call for PAPERS: Online teacher professional development

Meridian is issuing a call for submissions for publication in 2014, especially manuscripts that focus on Online Teacher Professional Development (oTPD). This area of teacher training has received some attention since the publication of Online Professional Development for Teachers: Emerging Models and Methods (2006), edited by Chris Dede, but almost ten years on, the research area is far from saturated. Meridian would like to join in the discussion. Manuscripts may investigate participant experiences, effect on participant learning, effect on student learning, program design, cost effectiveness, etc.
Apart from this special call, manuscripts that aid Meridian in its overall goal of promoting knowledge of K-16 educational technology are welcome and accepted.
