Institution: Seattle Pacific University
Topic: Including Online Students
Seattle Pacific University’s digital education leadership (DEL) program is an online program that was designed with high levels of student engagement in mind. We limit class size to ten students. We meet with each student every term for reflection and planning meetings. We host campus events to build community.
Our target audience is students who live within a half day’s drive of Seattle. That said, we are receiving interest from students who live far away and have limited options for an ed tech graduated degree. To accommodate those students while maintaining our goals of high levels of interaction we are exploring the use of telepresence robots to allow these students to participate in on-campus events.
