Should Distance Education Constitute Different Rewards for Faculty?
O'Quinn, Lisa, Corry, Michael, Distance Learning
While higher education has attempted to react to economic demands for skilled workers by delivering courses in formats convenient for students (i.e., distance education), it is questionable if institutions of higher learning have addressed the impact these demands have had on the internal core of the university-the faculty. Many facets of faculty's roles have changed as a result of technology and distance education (Baldwin, 1998; Gunawardena, 1992; Strain, 1987; ), but it is questionable if higher education's infrastructure has provided any impetus for faculty to more fully integrate technology into their courses or participate in distance education (DeSieno, 1995).
