OSU opens research unit for online teaching, learning

by Oregon State University

Oregon State University is increasing its commitment to online education with a new research unit to focus on online teaching and learning at OSU and across the nation. The OSU Extended Campus Research Unit is designed to create an accessible and inclusive online learning environment for these types of programs. Last month it received its first national grant and named eight OSU faculty members as its inaugural research fellows. “At this stage in higher education, research about online education still has a lot of gaps,” said Extended Campus research director Katie Linder. “There are many questions remaining about different technologies and how they impact student learning. The goal of these new initiatives is to ignite some excitement among faculty in a more collaborative fashion and answer those questions.”
