ASIS Midyear '98 Proceedings

Collaboration Across Boundaries:

Student-Faculty Interactions
across Distances

Sponsored by SIG ED


One obvious effect of a distance learning program is that faculty and students are no longer assumed to be geographically local to each other. This change in physical distance implies a change in communication patterns. In this panel, a faculty member in the University of Illinois' LEEP3 program will discuss her perspectives on the quality of faculty-student interaction. In addition, the results of a research study of faculty-student interaction in the University of North Texas' distance education program will be reported.
