Ad Hoc Committee on Online Teaching

Established: 2019

Purpose: The committee will survey existing models for online instruction and use its findings to inform a practical set of guidelines for departments. The guidelines will describe practices likely to be useful for departments and faculty who design online courses or teach online. In addressing the needs of online instructors, including part-time and non-tenure-track faculty, the committee should consider the different types of institutions and departments in which online teaching takes place, and the diversity of content and form of online instruction. The document will include resources for the design, implementation, and assessment of online teaching. The guidelines will articulate how online teaching embraces the standards for rigor and excellence outlined in previous AHA statements. Chair and members appointed by the Teaching Division.
