Abstract

In 1996, the authors of this report were funded by the California State University’s (CSU) Chancellor’s Office to train faculty from each of the 22 CSU campuses in a workshop designed to wed innovative pedagogical techniques with new models of distance education. An outcome of that grant was a program entitled Distributed Course Delivery for Problem Based Learning (Hoffman & Ritchie, 1996). This program included video teleconferencing sessions with each of the collaborating universities, a series of newsletters showcasing innovative educational ideas, a series of on-line Internet chats with experts from around the country, and a culminating two-day workshop. Although participant evaluations indicated high praise for both the knowledge and skills gained, we felt there was still something missing—that there was more we could do to help CSU faculty adopt emerging technologies in their teaching and scholarly activities.
