The requirements for teaching distance education courses are the same as those for teaching the equivalent face-to-face courses. Check with your department for specific qualifications, requirements, and limitations.
New distance education faculty are hired by the academic or vocational department and report to the Department Chair or Faculty Online Manager for that department, not to DEET. Applications should be submitted to CTC Human Resources.
Distant Learners have the same rights as students who sit in a face-to-face classroom. Consequently, the assignment of a distance education course should be received with the same level of faculty commitment as a face-to-face course.
All faculty working with distant learners are expected to have some degree of technical skills, and training is available.
With the initiative of providing Blackboard access for all courses (online and classroom), familiarity with basic Blackboard tools and basic computer skills are essential.
