Proposal Abstract

Professors need to accommodate administration mandates for designing online courses but what are professor attitudes towards online learning and which courses are better adapted to online instruction? Southern Polytechnic State University's Research Learning Community presents conducted research on this platform: A comparison of face-to-face; blended; and fully online models will be examined; as well as professor attitudes towards online learning and which polytechnic courses professors deem truly appropriate for the online environment. Flipped classroom techniques and learning activities used to enhance courses will also be addressed to investigate whether certain flipped classroom techniques are specific to a particular subject area. The SoTL audience will be surveyed as to their opinions of courses better suited for online instruction and which learning activities they incorporate into their own online classes as well as which activities they believe are particular to specific content area.
