How Can Student and Faculty Feedback Improve Online Program Quality?
As colleges and universities continue to expand the number of online courses and programs they offer, faculty, staff, and administrators will continue to identify ways to improve the quality of those offerings. One sometimes-overlooked strategy to positively impact quality is to periodically survey online students and faculty to receive feedback on topics such as online course design, facilitation skills of instructors, how content is created and delivered, if adequate technological support is available, etc. Student and faculty feedback can be informative and can help teaching center staff, instructional designers, and instructional technologists develop professional development opportunities for future and current online instructors.
