Rasmussen College Hosts Second Annual Virtual Conference For Faculty Development

Rasmussen College Concludes Virtual Conference For Faculty, By Faculty, In Which Faculty Clocked 650 Hours Of Live Attendance Learning Ways To Improve The Classroom Experience

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (July 11, 2011) – The Rasmussen College Virtual Center for Learning and Teaching has just concluded the college’s second annual virtual conference for faculty, by faculty, in which peers shared ideas to improve the classroom experience for students.

Titled “Quality Matters,” the three-day virtual faculty development conference began June 21, and featured Rasmussen College instructors presenting on issues including teaching with technology, online learning, and how to emulate that which is the Rasmussen College culture. Faculty logged on to the virtual conference online and logged more than 650 hours attending live presentations; since then, conference faculty have viewed more than 300 hours of archived presentations.

Last year, when Rasmussen College launched the concept of a virtual conference, it was mostly for faculty development and training within Rasmussen College Online. This year, the conference grew to thirty presentations attended by faculty and staff from 14 of the 22 Rasmussen College campus locations, and it was open to faculty across the entire college. In order to present at the conference, faculty had to write a proposal and submit it to the Rasmussen College Virtual Center for Learning and Teaching.

“At Rasmussen College, we are continuously striving to create an exceptional experience for our students, and the objective of the Quality Matters conference was to renew our faculty’s focus on quality in the classroom,” said Randall Smith, Rasmussen College’s Director of Online Faculty Training and Development. “We have been impressed by the high caliber of presentations shared by our faculty, and we have received tremendous feedback from instructors and campus leaders. We look forward to next year’s conference even more.”

The Virtual Center for Teaching and Learning at Rasmussen College is dedicated to creating outstanding educational experiences for both teachers and students, especially those in online degree programs. Academic experts work with faculty and student support specialists to deliver exceptional academics in a constructive and interactive educational environment.
