Reminder - Register Today for Upcoming NACOL Webinar

NACOL Monthly Webinar SeriesNACOL

January 9, 2008
2:00-3:00 PM (Eastern)

"Increasing Access and Equity in Online Courses and for Virtual Schools: A NACOL Research Committee Issues Brief"

Ray Rose, Rose & Smith Associates
Bob Blomeyer, Blomeyer & Clemente Consulting Services

How do we assure access and equitable enrollment in online courses?
Do your course design and selection criteria include accessibility?
Do you really know what it means when you say courses are accessible?
What are appropriate metrics for assessing your program’s compliance with equal access provisions of State and Federal legislation?

Access and equity issues have been identified as a concern by the online community for some time, but only a few online programs have begun taking action to insure access for students with disabilities or to recruit students from traditionally disadvantaged groups that may be under-represented in online courses and programs. The latest NACOL Research Committee Issues Brief was written to encourage developing a better understanding of the issues and support the virtual education community to begin working toward improving compliance with Federal and State mandates for both access and equity.

The virtual school community has contributed nationally to enriching curricular offerings by expanding enrollment options to include an increasing variety of high quality online courses. Online educators generally assume all students are equitably treated and that teaching and learning online is conducted without prejudice from race, language, or religion.

Bob and Ray have a long history of addressing issues of equity and access. This Webinar will clarify definitions and details about State and Federal statutes and regulations, and provide a forum for beginning discussions and the action planning needed to ensure the NACOL communities’ programs all begin making progress toward achieving full equity and access to online teaching and learning for all of America’s K-12 students.
