A variety of groups are sponsoring a forum on distance education Wednesday at 1 p.m. in room 123 of Dane Smith Hall.
The forum will feature a panel that includes Mark Smith, a representative from the American Association of the University Professors Committee on Distance Education and Intellectual Property; UNM associate anthropology professor Robert Leonard; and Richard Howell of UNM’s Extended University. Robert Bienstock, a representative to the University Counsel’s office, will also attend the forum.
The forum was organized by the UNM chapter of the American Association of University Professors, UNM Faculty Organizing Committee and UNM’s Extended University. The groups plan to discuss the best use of distance education technology and UNM’s policy on distance education.
The group also plans to discuss whether faculty members developing distance-education technology determine course enrollment, content and standards; own the teaching material they create; and receive adequate technical support and workload credit.
The forum is free and open to the public, and the sponsors are encouraging members of the UNM faculty and research staff to attend.
For more information, contact professor Hugh Witemeyer at 277-2415.
