Wednesday, September 14, 2016

Elizabeth (Liz) Ciabocchi, Ed.D., Vice Provost for Digital Learning/Executive Director of Online Learning & Services, recently published a paper in Online Learning (the journal of the Online Learning Consortium) with coauthors Amy P. Ginsberg, Ph.D., Long Island University, and Anthony J. Picciano, Ph.D., City University of New York, entitled “A Study of Faculty Governance Leaders’ Perceptions of Online and Blended Learning.”

According to the abstract on the article, 

This article reports the findings of a study on the perceptions of faculty governance leaders to online and blended learning. For the purposes of this study, faculty governance was defined as formally established bodies in colleges and universities such as senates, councils, and collective bargaining organizations that are affiliated with the American Association of University Professors (AAUP). While there have been many studies on the perceptions of students, faculty, and administrators, there has been very little research on the perceptions of faculty governance leaders who hold critical positions in colleges and universities. Governance leaders are at the crux of approval processes that influence the development of curricula, faculty personnel policies, and academic programs, all of which can impact the implementation of online and blended learning initiatives.
