December Faculty Meeting
Dec. 7, 2012
Topics of Interest:
Susan MacDonell will soon be organizing students wishing to attend the KPLA conference in April.
The SLIS program has accepted 42 students for the Spring semester, bringing the total enrollment to around 250 students.
There was discussion about creating a blog or wiki as a reference for both advisors and their advisees. It would provide general information, as well as list questions that have already been answered by advisors.
Finally, there was continued discussion about distance delivery methods for classes. UK is alone in not requiring blended, synchronous delivery for distance classes, compared with other benchmark institutions. It was decided to take a survey of faculty opinion about future decisions. It would also be necessary to consider which classes would best benefit from this option.
