Abstract

A Georgia Statewide Academic and Medical Systems (GSAMS) grant was awarded jointly to the State University of West Georgia and the Georgia Merit System to explore the distance policies of various types of institutions in the state during the 1998- 99 academic year. Two major areas of concern were explored: (1) how distance policies were established, and (2) what policies have been established. Five policy areas were examined: administration and management issues, technical issues, pedagogical issues, training issues, and evaluation issues. This paper presents the procedures used by the team to design and conduct the study, a description of how data will be analyzed and future directions of this research.
