The Online Faculty Fellows are ambassadors for online learning on the campus of WSU. Their purpose is to establish a culture of online education by helping their peers increase the quality and quantity of online courses offered at WSU.
Online Faculty fellows are selected to serve a one-year appointment in a cohort of 16 faculty members who will work with their peers on a variety of instructional techniques while addressing Quality MattersTM best practice standards.
The WSU Instructional Design and Technology Team, who are trained and experienced in using educational technology tools to design courses and develop faculty, support the Online Faculty Fellows and WSU Faculty.
