At a large urban institution in the heart of North Philadelphia, Temple University’s College of Public Health faced a contemporary problem: How can we keep up with the student demand for high-quality online programs if our faculty aren’t ready? There’s a simple answer: We can’t! So we decided to get our faculty ready and give them the tools to be successful in the online space, whether it’s their first class or their fourteenth. Here’s how we did it.
Scaling Up Online
Like other institutions, we’ve experienced a steady uptick in the number of faculty delivering courses online. Temple’s College of Public Health alone has seen a more than 50 percent increase in online classes within three years, partially due to the creation of seven new fully online graduate programs. With the explosion of new online courses came the need for faculty trained to teach in the traditional classroom to adapt their methods and styles to the online environment.
