- ItemCreating Successful Professional Development Activities for Online Faculty: A Reorganized Framework(University of West Georgia, 2018-03-30) Scarpena, Kate; Riley, Michele; Keathley, MichaelIn the online environment, faculty engagement in the form of professional development takes on a new significance. Online programs hold strategic importance and growth opportunities for institutions, and therefore universities need faculty members who are engaged and effectively teaching in the online environment (Allen & Seaman, 2013, 2016; Dennis, 2013). Faculty professional development provides a vital component to overall faculty engagement and student success in the online environment. Extant research shows that when faculty members are active within the university, they are also likely to be engaged in the classroom (Drew & Klopper, 2014; Umbach & Wawrzynski, 2005.) Effective professional development specifically offered for online faculty needs to provide additional layers of support to help foster community, support faculty use of technologies, and meet university requirements (Meyer & Murrell, 2014). This paper presents a reorganized, more systematic professional development framework for online faculty that enhances virtual opportunities and support within the domains of personal considerations and interpersonal relationships (Caffarella & Zinn, 1999; Cervero & Daley, 2016). The approach developed in this paper reorients and extends an existing conceptual construct by placing greater emphasis on the development of a community of learning in order to help faculty develop strong pedagogical practice in teaching in order to both meet university requirements and foster increased student success.

- ItemThe Power of a Collective Voice(2019-08) Harrison, Jennifer"Forced feedings…Hunger strikes…Jailhouse brutality…Racism…Fractious organizations…These may not be the images we immediately conjure when we consider the suffrage movement in the United States. We may often think of the courage, the sense of near fearlessness, or perhaps the iconic images of women silently protesting in front of the White House, but even with the latter, there has often been a romanticized approach in discussions of the suffrage movement. Yes, women were courageous, and yes, they took on the monumental task of attempting to change a centuries-old societal assumption of women’s rightful place. But the movement was often divided during its 72 years due to a power struggle between varying suffrage organizations; towards the final years of the movement, the two main organizations left standing, the National Woman’s Party (NWP), the more agitation-intensive organization, and the National Women’s Suffrage Association (NAWSA), which preferred a more traditional lobbying approach, made an effort to co-exist as they intensified their efforts to secure the right to vote."
