31-05-2012 13:28 Ms. Krista LeBrun, eLearning Coordinator Mr. Terry Pollard, Director of Training and Professional Development Mississippi Virtual Community College The MSVCC initiated an online professional development program in the fall of 2007. The program, available to all community college faculty teaching in the Mississippi system, has now graduated more than 1000 faculty. Courses are delivered asynchronously with peer-to-peer learning opportunities for faculty across disciplines and institutions. The no-cost professional development program has slowly gained traction as a viable model for learning best practices for online instruction. But it hasn't always been smooth sailing. Still, community colleges have understood the value proposition offered in online professional development: as a platform for providing faculty with insight to online pedagogy as well as the knowledge necessary to utilize the tools and features available in the learning management system. Presenters in this session will speak on these challenges, offer lessons learned, and reflect on often overlooked aspects of group dynamics: articulating a common vision and establishing mutual trust.
