Proven Strategies for Overcoming Resistance to Online Education | Magna Publications

Check out this Online Seminar—Live below.
Is your institution exploring online education to its full potential? and how does your campus handle change?

More importantly, is your campus letting misconceptions about online education hinder opportunities for teaching and learning in this environment?
A recent survey by the Babson College Survey Group for the Online Learning Consortium found only one-third of chief academic officers report their faculty accepts the value and legitimacy of online education.
How can you continue to inspire interest in and acceptance of new online programs despite these odds?
Online courses are here to stay.

This means school officials must find thoughtful and easy-to-implement strategies to address these concerns.
Seasoned program director Brian Udermann faced similar challenges when he rolled out an online curriculum at his school. Through this experience, Udermann developed practical solutions to overcome these barriers.
Now, he is sharing his tools and resources for tackling stubborn resistance through the upcoming seminar, Creating a Culture of Acceptance for Online Education.
What will you learn?
This program prepares participants to do the following:
  • Determine the current culture of online education on your campus and gain a stronger understanding of the curriculum’s strengths and weaknesses
  • Develop effective strategies to create a culture of acceptance regarding online education that you can bring back to your own campus and employ right away
  • Identify potential allies on campus who may be interested in joining units or committees that can be called upon to help improve the overall culture of online education
Creating a culture of acceptance for online education on campus takes time, and success often comes in small incremental steps.
Here is a unique opportunity to learn from an experienced and successful administrator who understands the frustrations and challenges associated with facing resistance to online education.
