Charting the Future of Online Graduate Education at Michigan State University

The impetus for the learning community is a need for communication, shared best practices, and innovation among the online graduate degree programs at Michigan State University. Since January 2019, this learning community has met and prioritized the following domains related to graduate online education for discussion: program marketing and student recruitment, student experience and support, faculty onboarding and support, financial models, accessibility, administrative policies and faculty evaluation. The learning community will discuss more specific topics within each of the domains, as well as begin multiple work groups to develop tools, manuscripts, proposed policy, etc. as outcomes from the learning community.
