Assessing Prior Online Teaching Experience & Competency

Assessing Prior Online Teaching Experience & Competency

The Missing Link of Online Faculty Review

Finding tools for evaluating online faculty, especially new hires, is critical to building a high quality online program. In this Magna seminar you will explore strategies and rubrics that are already in place and working at the University of Central Florida .

The University of Central Florida is one of the fastest-growing universities in the country. This kind of growth has placed enormous pressures on the academic delivery infrastructure and online learning has proven to be a key strategy to meet student demand. As new faculty members are hired to meet that demand, an increasing number of them join UCF with prior experience teaching online elsewhere.

UCF has developed an online form intended for selected faculty that determines if their experience, competence, and teaching philosophy meet UCF standards. The submitted information and course design artifacts are evaluated by instructional designers according to a rubric. This rubric can serve as a model for other institutions who wish to customize and use such an instrument to assess their experienced incoming online faculty.
