    1. Above & Beyond Traditional Course Delivery Systems Dr. Jennifer Dooleyand Dr. Nancy McCormick Middle Tennessee State University

    2. Above & Beyond Traditional Course Delivery Systems DSP Online Course Selection • Elementary Algebra • Intermediate Algebra • Geometry • Learning Strategies • Courses in RODP

    3. Above & Beyond Traditional Course Delivery Systems Delivery of Online Courses • POD Required for Enrollment • Student submits online survey • Must be first attempt in course • When possible, get input from previous instructor • Use instructor’s discretion

    4. Above & Beyond Traditional Course Delivery Systems Delivery of Online Courses • Building Community • Orientation w/pre-testing • Email for communication between instructor and student(s) • Discussions for communication between students

    5. Above & Beyond Traditional Course Delivery Systems Delivery of Online Courses • Assessments • Posts to discussion board (10%) • Online quizzes (10%) • Tests (online and proctored) (40%) • Homework (20%) • Departmental Final (20%)

    6. Above & Beyond Traditional Course Delivery Systems Online Courses • Advantages • Good format for independent learners • Students can finish early • Good format for many non-traditional students • Content for different learning styles • Disadvantages • No face-to-face instruction • Can loose connection w/ students quickly • Can’t “see” whether students understand • No easy/quick adjustments to course content

    7. Above & Beyond Traditional Course Delivery Systems Hybrid Courses • In process of formulating plans for hybrid courses of elementary and intermediate algebra (a TR class at 4:30) • Hybrid model might be ½ time in traditional classroom and ½ time online • Decide what content and/or activities are better accomplished online or in a classroom

    8. Above & Beyond Traditional Course Delivery Systems Hybrid Courses • Advantages • Students only have to be on campus ½ (or less) time, but have the face-to-face interaction • Allows one classroom space at one classroom time to generate 6 credit hours • Students could pair one hybrid course with another hybrid course to get credit for 2 courses in same amount of time • Course rubric could just have an “H” to indicate a hybrid course

    9. Above & Beyond Traditional Course Delivery Systems DSP Accelerated Courses • DSPW 0800 / ENGL 1010 • DSPM 0800E

    10. Above & Beyond Traditional Course Delivery Systems DSPW 0800 / ENGL 1010 • Enrollment Criteria • Quality of placement essay (3+) • AND • ACT score (17 or 18) • OR • 2.5 HS GPA or 500 GED • OR • 2.5 GPA for transfers

    11. Above & Beyond Traditional Course Delivery Systems DSPW 0800 / ENGL 1010 • Begin in DSPW 0800 • Decision made about mid-term who will move to ENGL 1010 roll • Students moved to ENGL 1010 (permanently exempted from DSPW) • Students not moved will complete DSPW 0800 as usual

    12. Above & Beyond Traditional Course Delivery Systems DSPM 0800E • Can complete Elementary and Intermediate in one semester • Students self select • Two five-day per week sections taught simultaneously

    13. Above & Beyond Traditional Course Delivery Systems DSPM 0800E • 0800 final exam administered at mid-term to all students • Successful students can move to the Intermediate path • Unsuccessful students given customized remediation in Elementary path

    14. Above & Beyond Traditional Course Delivery Systems DSPM 0800E • Course Grades • Students given a grade ONLY for 0800 • Students who complete 0850 successfully will have a permanent waiver for the course • 3 scenarios • Unsuccessful in 0800 • Successful in 0800 / Unsuccessful in 0850 • Successful in both 0800 and 0850

    15. Above & Beyond Traditional Course Delivery Systems DSP Accelerated Courses • Advantages • Get to observe students’ work 6-7 weeks to make a better decision • Will expedite completion of program for students who can do so • Did not require approval for a new course • Disadvantage • Students may not have timeframe to get as extensive foundation for subsequent courses

    16. Above & Beyond Traditional Course Delivery Systems Supplemental Instruction • Targeted Courses • High percentages D’s, F’s, W’s • Large class size • Gatekeeper or capstone courses • Supportive & enthusiastic faculty

    17. Above & Beyond Traditional Course Delivery Systems Supplemental Instruction • Structuring • Students self select • SI Supervisor is onsite, trained professional • SI Leader is student who successfully completed course

    18. Above & Beyond Traditional Course Delivery Systems Supplemental Instruction • SI Supervisor • Targets the course • Selects and trains SI Leader • Monitors quality of SI sessions • Evaluates the program

    19. Above & Beyond Traditional Course Delivery Systems Supplemental Instruction • SI Leader • The KEY to success of program • Model students who has been successful in course • Intensive training • Attends all class meetings, reads materials, takes notes • Conducts about 3 sessions per week

    20. Above & Beyond Traditional Course Delivery Systems Supplemental Instruction • Advantages • High pass rates • Positive feedback from students • Disadvantages • Labor intensive for supervisor • Relatively expensive

    21. Above & Beyond Traditional Course Delivery Systems Learning Communities • Living-learning communities • First-year • Aerospace • Honors • Recording Industry • Women in Science • Deciding students

    22. Above & Beyond Traditional Course Delivery Systems Learning Communities • Raider Learning Communities • Paired courses • Academic course with experiential course

    23. Above & Beyond Traditional Course Delivery Systems Learning Communities • Advantages • Valuable retention tool • Builds community • Better rapport with instructor

    24. Above & Beyond Traditional Course Delivery Systems Learning Communities • Disadvantages • Requires much organization by program coordinators • Teaching assignments cannot be arbitrary
