Description

Mission drives method. As instructors in the twenty-first century, we must align our identity with our methodology and learning outcomes. We also know that design drives outcomes and good teaching is good teaching, whether online or on campus. Finally, leadership drives participation. We can’t expect people to follow someone who isn’t leading. Faculty buy-in requires good leadership, collaborative models, and adequate training.

About the Author

Harding welcomes our special guest Dr. Mary Lowe. She is Associate Dean of Online Programs for the Rawlings School of Divinity at Liberty University. She teaches online, primarily in the doctoral program. Mary earned the Ed.D. from Nova Southeastern University but more importantly, for this audience, she also earned an M. A. in Adult Education from the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville! She has also been actively involved in online learning working in the areas of administration, training, consulting, and instruction. In addition to her Liberty duties, Mary also serves as the President of ACCESS, the Association for Christian Distance Education. Mary and her husband, Steve, love the state of Arkansas because it is home to two of their children and all five of their grandchildren, pictures of whom are available upon request.
