Desktop Lecture Series: University of Arizona Visiting Scholar Frank Christ
Tuesday, October 31, 2000 – 4:00 PM EST (New York)
On-line students, like traditional classroom students, require academic support services to optimize their study and learning efforts.
Books, articles, and web site information seem to indicate that on-line students do have access to these academic support programs and services. A closer look, however, at what is available seems to indicate that most virtual universities do not offer many of the academic programs and services that are available on postsecondary campuses.
Please join CSU, Long Beach Professor Emeritus and University of Arizona Visiting Scholar Frank Christ as he discusses “Fact or Fiction? Academic Support for On-line Students: A Learning Support Center Viewpoint.”
This presentation proposes that on-line institutions consider making available for its students a full complement of academic support programs and services. It also proposes that on-line institutions consider making available, both on-line and in cooperation with existing campus physical facilities, learning support center programs and services for computer/on-line competencies and for more effective and efficient study strategies and learning skills.
Audience members will be able to interact with Mr. Christ, as HorizonLive enables all participants to chat with him throughout the presentation.
