TLTR Meeting of January 16, 2000

A Summary

    The TLTR met on January from 2:00 until 3:30 p.m. in the Lovejoy Library Conference Room.
Professor Wendy Shaw presented a summary of her research findings pertaining to faculty time utilization in an online course and faculty time utilization within a traditional face-to-face class. Dr. Shaw noted she spent a great deal of time preparing the class prior to going on line.  Once the classes were underway, more per capita time was spent on the online course. Dr. Shaw noted that there was more individualized contact with online students, more activities by students, and a general sense that students achieved at a higher level. More students in the online course achieved high scores on the comprehensive final than in the traditional class.
    Provost Hahs announced the following meeting dates and times for the TLTR: February 13, March 20 and April 18 from 2:00 until 3:30 p.m. All meetings are held in the Lovejoy Library Conference Room.
Task groups gave their reports of their ongoing work. Progress reports will be made in February and summary reports presented on March 20.
