In an effort to create more research opportunities for Penn State World Campus students, Penn State is offering a new professional development course to encourage faculty to work with online students. The course, “Conducting Research with Your Online Students,” which starts June 11, was offered for the first time this spring. “The aim of the course is to give faculty the confidence that they can translate their face-to-face research into an online environment,” said Brian Redmond, the lead faculty member for organizational leadership at Penn State World Campus who helped create the course. Redmond said the ultimate goal is to create publishable research opportunities for students and faculty. “We want to translate Penn State’s reputation for research into the online world,” he said.
