Faculty onboarding and support are critical for successful online teaching and learning. Learn from three separate institutions who will share their good practices and lessons learned with recruiting, onboarding, support, and promotion strategies. University of Maryland University College will discuss how institution-wide departments worked as a team to create a solution that integrated information from the various functions to provide a holistic view of the faculty’s assignments, training, development needs, evaluations and eligibility for promotions and/or awards. Purdue University, a research 1, land grant institution, is evolving to meet student demands by rapidly scaling up centralized support structures to assist faculty in transitioning to online and innovative teaching and learning opportunities. Sustainable support during rapid growth has been essential. Transforming the education landscape requires innovative thinking and bold actions. Arizona State University Online is committed to these principles in delivering high-quality educational resources to learners around the world. ASU's online courses are delivered by the same award winning faculty who inspire on-ground classrooms.
