1. Rationale


Step 1 rationale
Step 1: Rationale Teaching Rotation: A Case Study in Web-Based Instruction

  • Penetration of distance education

    • Pedagogy/andragogy

    • Educational technology

  • Challenges to academy

    • “Graying” of faculty

  • Benefits for participants

    • Institutions

    • Student teachers

    • Faculty preceptors


Distance education penetration
Distance Education - Penetration Teaching Rotation: A Case Study in Web-Based Instruction

  • e-Learning opportunities more available

  • In higher education institutions:

    • In Ohio, 64,000 students estimated to have completed an online course1

    • Nationally, online enrollments in 2005 increased to a high of 3.2 million2,3

      • 2.35 million in 2004

      • 1.98 million in 2003

    • Nearly 60% of institutions identify e-learning as a long term educational strategy2

Distance education penetration1
Distance Education - Penetration Teaching Rotation: A Case Study in Web-Based Instruction

  • Variety of formats

    • all online ( > 80% online, no face-to-face)

    • blended/hybrid (30 – 79% online with some face-to-face)

    • web-facilitated (1 - 29% online, usually supplement a face-to-face class)

  • Variety of technologies

    • course management systems

    • internal web-pages

    • Internet-based conferencing software (1997)

      • participants are part of a social learning community.


Benefits for institutions
Benefits for Institutions Teaching Rotation: A Case Study in Web-Based Instruction
