Our spring DE SIG @Duke meetings will be hosted on-site by a specific Duke school/department and will offer an overview of their online courses and programs. Topics addressed will range from managing online programs – processes, technologies, and instructional design, to quality assurance, program evaluation, student and faculty satisfaction, and emerging trends in online teaching and learning.

By visiting Duke DE programs this spring, we have an opportunity to learn from one another, share resources, and learn how to better support programs from the administrator and faculty perspective.
