Webinar: Credit Hour Verification

Mar 17th 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Campus Center Heritage Room - Stan Dakken Drive, Mayville, N.D.

All MSU faculty are invited to participate in this webinar presented by Melanie Morris, Professor, Business Law, and Pattiann Kletz, Associate Professor, Business, at Raritan Valley Community College. In the spring of 2013, Raritan Valley Community College (RRVC) began its journey toward compliance with the Middle States Commission on Higher Education's policy on credit hour. The presenters will illustrate the faculty-driven process RVCC adopted to demonstrate compliance, and will discuss the methodology behind the work RVCC faculty completed in the area of credit hour equivalency for online courses. The resulting product is a faculty self-audit, wherein faculty apply a set of generalized metrics to quantify the length of instructional time in an online course. Once submitted, audits are peer reviewed by a reviewer who has been trained in the review process. Melanie Morris convened the original committee as the interim director of online learning and Pattiann Kletz was a member of that committee and is currently a reviewer.
