5lippery Rock University Proposal for a Master of Education in Technology for Online Educational Instruction Submitted to the Council of Trustees

June,2014 Slippery Rock University is proposing a Master of Education in Technology for Online Educational Instruction program to enhance educator skills in the burgeoning online environment. The program will appeal to students entering the field, as well as exiting teachers who are looking to develop their skill set in online learning. Most notably, it is designed to complement the current Letter of Completion in Teaching Online for students who want to complete the full degree. As a fully online master's degree, this program

will support our president's and the system's commitment to lifelong learning. Our goalof meeting the needs of learners with varied scheduling and career goals has challenged us to rethink the space where Iearning occurs while maintaining the quality of a Slippery Rock education. ln addltion, students will learn about online pedagogy while experiencing on line learning. The program is planned to begin in Fall 2015.

Description, scope, and purpose of the program Description: The program will include 30 credits of coursework aimed at building student knowledge and skills in using web-based tools to effectively create an online K-12 teaching environment. Students will be able to apply the tools and skills based on research-based strategies and pedagogy. The final course will include a capstone project, where students will develop an online module including lessons, activities, assessments, synchronous and asynchronous instruction and other methods of instruction based on their learning in the program. Slippery Rock currently offers a Letter of Completion (LOC) in Teaching Online. The master's protram will be available to students in the LOC program who are interested in adding on the full graduate degree. Courses in the LOC will be applicable to the master's degree. The master's degree will be offered completely online and will be defined by the following:

1. 2.

Open to all teacher candidates (i.e., students preparing to become teachers), currently certified teachers, graduate students, or by permission of the department chairperson SRU faculty teaching the courses will have earned certified online instructor status at SRU.

Scope: This master's degree will provide a general focus on the pedagogies of teaching online, plus a specialty application in teaching online and hybrid classes in the following areas:

a) Special Ed ucation b) Physical Education c) Health Ed ucation d) K-12 Education

Purpose: By the end of the master's degree, students will be able to do such things as: a) Synthesize the various theories of distance education b) Explain research dealing with learning outcomes in distance education c) ldentify steps to select appropriate technologies for online instruction


d) e)

Describe foundations of internet-based distance education Demonstrate competencies in planning for instruction through internet based distance

ucation ldentify characteristics of the distant education students and know factors that influence online learner's success Apply various assessment strategies to evaluate learner progress in an online course. ed

f) g)

The benefits for program completers are as follows: a) Increased ability to improve student learning via online and hybrid classes b) Increased ability to secure jobs in all online cyber-schools and in school districts with expectations that teachers can teach well not only face-to-face but also via online and

c)

hvbrid classes Increased ability to earn promotions

The benefits to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and beyond: a) Increased student learning outcomes b) lmproved educational processes

c)

Increased availability of high-quality online instruction

Appropriateness to university mission and strategic plan The Technology for online Educational Instruction maste/s degree will fit with the Slippery Rock University vision, mission, and plan as well as the Academic Affairs and College of Education strategic D

ta

ns.

Vision: Because the Master's in Teaching Online promotes lifelong learning, it fits clearly with the Slippery Rock University Vision statement that "Slippery Rock University will excel as a caring community of lifelong learners connecting with the world." Mission: Because the degree will promote the improved performance of teachers in the region and beyond, this program aligns with the aspects ofthe University Mission to provide high quality undergraduate and graduate academic instruction, promote professional performance, and to address the educationally related economic...needs of the region served by the University, includlng a focus in teacher ed ucation. University Strategic Plan: Because the degree will teach students to apply best practices, this program promotes the following Slippery Rock University "Higher Education in 2025 and Beyond" Strategic Plan statement: Slippery Rock University will be a national showcase for the application of best practices, innovative pedagogy and use of cutting-edge technology in support of the faculty, students, and staffs' living, learning, and research activities (Trend One, Strategy 3). lt also dovetails with Trend 4: Education as Access since it will facilitate leadership in the exploration of student needs. Academic Affairs strategic pla n: The degree specifically aligns to the following Slippery Rock University Academic Affairs strategic planning goals: Goal | - Increase enrollment of diverse students by providing a program that will help practicing teachers and teachers in search of teaching positions, develop needed skills. Goal lll - A distinctive, quality, and agile curriculum by providing a unique program that is clearly needed by educators, and that takes full advantaSe of faculty expertise in this area.


.

Goalv - Enhanced outcomes for students, faculty & staff at SRU by increasing students' marketability to secure jobs in online teaching, increasing graduates ability to teach effectively online, and by re-directing faculty to an area of need.

Sustainable Needs Analysis The NCEs estimates that 53% of public high schools had students enrolled in some distance education courses in 2009-2010. The ability to effectively educate students in an online environment is lackin8 in the nation. As such, the US Department of Education, in 20L0, made the preparing teachers for oniine instruction a national goal that, when achieved, will improve the effectiveness of traditional classroom instruction and will connect skilled educators with the underserved communities that need them the most. Reaching this goal will require a collective effort, and SRU'S proposed master's in online teaching is a step in the right direction. Helping teachers address the needs of this ma rket will create an important resource within the Commonwealth. The number of K-12 teachers needed within 150 miles of SRU is expected to rise modestly by 2020, adding 3,100 jobs to the region. At the same time, schools across the commonwealth continue to increase their blended or fully-online learning options. According to the PA Department of Education, in 2012-2013, there were over 34,500 students enrolled in one of the 14 PA cyber schools, not counting cyber programs available at brick-and-mortar schools. Demand has prompted an additional six cyber schools to apply for a charter, which could drive enrollment up to over 47,0OO by 2018. These new schools alone are projecting a need for 343 teachers, who will need specialization in online pedagogy. Profession, labor, and employment trends: Western Pennsylvania school district superintendents have indicated a need for coursework designed to prepare teachers to maximize student learning in hybrid and fully-online classrooms. They also indicated if Slippery Rock University were to offer such a program, that it would meet a labor/employment need and supply needed expertise in this growth

trend area Demand for the program among current and prospective students Current students enrolled in College of Education undergraduate programs were surveyed about their interest in future enrollment in a Master's program in Technology for Online Educational Instruction. The question asked was: "The College of Education is in the process of developing a new maste/s degree program aimed at helping educators develop expertise in teaching in a K-12 cyber school setting. This survey is being sent to determine your level of interest in this type of master's program." Out of 67 responses, 36 were highly or somewhat interested as shown in Table L below. The results are promising because over half of the students polled show interest in this type of program. Uniqueness of the program No other PASSHE school has a master's degree in Technology for Online Educational lnstruction. Some national online universities such as WaldenU.edu have a similar program; however, Slippery Rock is in a position to closely collaborate with Pennsylvania school districts to offer this program for current teachers. SRU's Dean of Education attends Intermediate Unit and superintendent meetings to ensure that the program represents the unique needs of the Commonwealth. Such relationships facilitate a feedback loop emphasizing alignment of curricula with employer needs.

Enrollment projections It is projected that most student clientele will be full-time and will enter the program just after completing undergraduate teacher education programs at Slippery Rock University and other PASSHE institutions. Another group of students will be veteran teachers who are now choosing to teach in a cyber-school or in hybrid classroom. Most students will be able to complete the master's degree in one calenda r vear. Based on the content and documentation of need mentioned in the above sections, the proposed degree will be one of the first of its kind and represents a missing educational component of teacher

preparation. An internal survey of current students projected that 20 students enrolled in SRU teacher education programs will initially be interested in completing this proBram. These students are likely to come from Slippery Rock University's recently created Letter of completion in Teaching online. Additional students and practicing teachers from outside 5RU will also be interested in the proposed master's degree program, thus increasing enrollment by an estimated 7 students. By year 3, total enrollment is expected to be 27 students per year. sRU's retention rate for full-time students is 82 percent, so it is possible that 18 percent, or five students, might withdraw.

The initiative is sponsored by the Green & White Society, and each weekday a series of names are being read at various locations across carnpus by volunteers. This will continue through December's graduation. Laura Ordaz - Thank you to my fellow trustees, to Tina and Kelli for all ofyour help and answering my many questions, to Dr. Watson and Dr. Norton for always having your doors open. Congratulations to Buddy and thanks for your hard work and support of students.

Conrmissioner Bill McCarrier - It's always a wonderful experience to be on campus. What is most rewarding is hearing from our irrcredible students. This is the reason we are all here. It is so rewarding to witness students having positive experiences as they learn and grow to one day graduate and go out into the world and do great things. Senator Mary Jo White. Thank you to Dr. Nofion and her staff for the incredible work they do. I met some wonderful students at lunch today who love their time at SRU, and the food is always good!

Thank you to Chairman Taylor, Dr. Nofion, my fellow trustees, and all ofthe SRU employees. I had an opportunity to take some time and walk around the campus and it is beautiful. I would also like to quickly acknowledge an SRU graduate, Calvin Jackson, who graduated from SRU. I own a sports team in the area and Calvin came to a tryout looking for ajob. He started at22inalow level position and worked his way to a senior executive position with the company at 25. The proof is in the pudding. I've seen what SRU does for young people.

Colleee/Division Executive Summa Business, Information and Social Sciences: The College of Business, Information, and Social Science faculty are working on developing new programs that are market responsive. Two examples include an interdisciplinary bachelor/s degree with two tracks, one in corporate security and one in homeland security. This program will have course contributions from information systems, business and criminology. A second example is a computing informatics degree that will have a second emphasis in health informatics.

our college was honored to have one of our School of Business majors, Taylor Shenberger, chosen

as

the Academic Honors Convocation speaker on April 5, 2014. While obtaining 10 scholarships and working, Taylor took advantage of the cost-efficient 3-year option that the School of Business provides its students to graduate a year early. She is a Presidential Scholar, Gold Key National Honor Society Member, Student Accounting Society member and secretary, and served as executive vice president and vice president of alumni relations for Alpha Kappa Psi. She will be joining UPMC's cost management department following graduation. The Communication DeDartment received numerous awards for its accomolishments with the student paper, The Rocket. The following awards were received from the 2013 Mark of Excellence Awards (MOE) and The Columbia Scholastic Press Association: The Rocket received eight MOE Awards from the Society of Professional Journalists this year. Those students from the Rocket who received awards were: Patrick Mccill- Breaking News Photography; Jonathan Janasik - Breaking News Reporting; Alex Mowrey - Sports Photography, General News Photography, and Feature Photography; Katie Ellis - Best Use of Multimedia. The Columbia Scholastic Press Association considered 4,279 entries in digital media or yearbook produced by students at colleges, universities and secondary schools throughout the United States. The Online Rocket was given a Certificate of Merit award and named one of the top five

online college news websites in the country. lt is a testament to the hard work of the staff of The Online Rocket that it is the only site that is not affiliated with a daily newspaper with fulltime paid staff members.

Slippery Rock University ol Pennsylvania Division ol Academic Afloirs Qudrte y Report lune 2074

Education: With 46 more deposits this year compared to last year at this time for the incoming freshman class, the College of Education continues to see a strong growth in enrollment. The College of Education is currently busy constructing its Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) off-site virtual exhibit room housing exhibits, artifactt narratives, and data demonstrating how we are meeting the rigorous national standards. The off-site review of these materials will take place this fall, with the on-site review taking place next spring. Beginning in Summer 2014, the College of Education will offer sub-baccalaureate and postbaccalaureate letters of completion in Teaching Online. These two LOCS will give students a three to four course credential in online pedagogy and teaching practice, which they can then use to enhance their career paths. The Middle States Commission on Higher Education is currently considering a substantive change request to allow SRU to offer a second doctoral degree (Ed.D.) in special education. The proposed start date is Spring 2015.

Health, Envlronment, and Science: This year has been one of continuing success of our Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) students. Most recently two teams of STEM students placed in the meritorious (highest) category in the International Mathematical Modeling Contest, with one ofthese teams makinB the top 1% ofall 5,000+ teams from around the world. In addition,6l STEM students had peer-reviewed publications (10

students) and presentations (51 students) accepted in state, national, and international venues. Slippery Rock University will host the second annual PASSHE STEM Undergraduate Research Conference in November 2014 after successfully hosting the inaugural conference in Fall 2013. These student-faculty undergraduate research opportunities are high impact practices that not only assist with student retention, but serve as door-openers for graduate school and employment. We look forward to increasinB these numbers in 2014-20L5. Humanitles, Fine and Performlng Arts: SRU'S Master of Arts in History was removed from moratorium in March 2014.

Slippery Rock Univercity ol Pennsylvdnio Division ol Acddemic Alfdirs Quarterly Report lune 2074 The faculty of the CHFPA provided an important emphasis on diversity and international culture. George Brown, Political Science, received grant funding from the ASlANetwork and the Mellon Foundation to participate in the Faculty Enhancement Program: Deepening Asian Studies in the LiberalArts. He also had a chapter published, "The North Korean Nuclear Weapons Threat, Japanese Reactions and the Possibility of a Northeast Asian Nuclear Arms Race," in the book, The Dynamics of Cultural Counterpoint in Asian Studies. Razak Abedalla, Modern Languages and Cultures, presented a paper "A Search for Meanings of Sub-Cultures: An Ethnography of Arab Tribal Cultural Matrices" at the Modern Languages Conference at Shippensburg University. Sunita Peacock, English, presented a paper, Trickster or Colonizer: The Latent Effects of Colonialism in Efua Sutherland's play, 'The Marriage of Anansewa,' at

the 38th Comparative Drama Conference, Stevenson University. Enrollment Services: The Office of Enrollment Services is working with a pilot group of eleven academic departments and the office of retention services, career education and development, residence life, student leadership and involvement, and the counseling center to launch the Education Advisory Board's "Student Success

Collaborative" (SSC). Borrowing from the most innovative in-and-out of industry ideas, the SSC combines technology, research and predictive analytics to help institutions positively inflect outcomes for at-risk and off-path students. The analytics engine surfaces the specific academic factors - such as courses, credit accumulations, and grades - that are most correlated with success and failure at an

institution. The Office of Enrollment Services launched the online "Parent Portal" with the new freshmen as part of the orientation program. The portal provides parents access to information related to their child's academic progress, financial aid status, and billing access. The procedures are aligned with the Federal Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and helps to eliminate the trend of students sharing their network password with their parents. The Department of Academic Services finalized the results of the First Year Initiative Survey (FYl) which is an assessment completed by the first year students who were enrolled in the FYRST Seminar during the Fall 2013 semester. The survey provides the students' perceptions of the student learning outcomes. Over 97% of the first year students were enrolled in the course and 50.8 % responded online and completed the survey. The Slippery Rock University students'factor means were statistically significant or equal to as compared with the Carnegie Class group on 20 ofthe 2l factors. SRU'S overall program effectiveness factor mean was statistically hi8her that the Carnegie Class factor.

Division of Student Affairs Council of Trustees RePort June 2014

EXECUTT!'E SUMMARY status, For tlte most part, this repoft will serve as what is intended, a quarterly report, however, given my interim A year the executive summary portion will serve as a very brief annual account of events under my management. environment a collaborative to develop the President; by ago, I was charged with at least two responsibilities within the division of Student Affairs, as well as a willingness to collaborate with all areas outside the Division, and to improve the comnrunication ofthe Division with all areas ofthe University, especially with the President's Office. I lelieve the record ofthe Division illustrates the accomplishrnent of both goals.

Initially, several goals for the Division and its integral departments and programs were established early on in the year, blginning June 2013. However, as a result ofthe pending majol budget deficit, created over the summer, n1u.h oi111y p"-rronal efforts and the efforts of all faculty and staff quickly focused on the overwhelming need to re-budget ani find substantial savings in the 2014 and 2015 fiscal year budgets. Subsequently, more than $125 million were earmarked and cut from the divisional budget, including the permanent reduction of eight faculty or staffpositions- This was accornplished through considerable time and effort of nearly every tnember ofthe Division. After the Council ofTrustees approved the budget and its substantial reductions at its December 2013 meeting, the second step began. It was now necessary to create and implement a structure that would deliver all the programs, activitiei, opportunities and support to students given the loss of faculty, staff and budget. ln January 1014, after considerable discussion, a division-wide reorganization was initiated. The goal of providing a quality educational experience outside the classroom was attained predominately due to the outstanding work ethic and professional nature ofthe facuhy and staffofthe Division. STUDENT DEVELOPMENT The Center for Student Involvenent & Leadership continued to develop a robust mixture of events and services for our students on campus. Greek Life participated in their annual Greek Week and were able to donate $3,900 to Make-A-Wish Foundation, which is enough to once again enough to grant a wish for a child. Greek Life partnered with the Slippery Rock Alcohol and Addictions Coalition, AVI/ Pepsi, AAA, and the H.O.P E Peer Educators to host the l5th annual Alcohol Free Mix Offfor over 500 students. W.O.W. Team application responses increased this year with a total of 235 new applicants and I 7 retuming applicants. Last year W.O.W. team was comprised of 70 students' total. The University Program Board hosted a number of successful events in the spring 2014 semester. The University Events committee hosted 2 events including a trip to the Pittsburgh Zoo with 90 students in attendance (sold out event) and the End of Year Collaborative Event with 600 students in attendance. The Speakers committee hosted RJ Mitte, actor and disability activist and 292 students attended. The Community Service committee hosted 2 events including "Do it for the Burgh" day of service/city cleanup and 96 students attended (sold out event) and also the 1 st ever color run "Color the Rock- 125 Ann iversary 5k" and 3 00 students participated (sold out event) and 88 students volunteered to help run the event. The Concerts committee also hosted the annual Spring Concert and 2,350 students/community attended (another sold out event!) The leadership programs to excel with the First Year Leader Scholar Program (FLSP) producing 309 graduates (an increase fiom 134 last year). Also, the Compass L,eadership Program continues to successfully enroll over 2000 Slippery Rock University Students in that specific leadership development program. Our Community Service programs focused on food drives, military care packages, street/park clean-ups, and also sent a delegation ofStudent Government Leaders to San Antonio, Texas to perform sewice in the San Antonio City Schools. The Women's Center hosted various events during March to celebrate Women's History Month. In addition, SRU completed the 1Oth Claire R. Schmieler Insiitute for Professional Women. Seventy-eight University women have cornpleted the Institute since its inception in 2004, with six completing this past academic year.

This quarter, the Office of Multicultural Development recognized the achievement of underrepresented student graduates through its spring 2014 Graduation Celebration held on Thursday, May 8'" at 5pm in Smith Center Ballroom. There were 48 students from various races and ethnicities participating in this event where family and friends ofthe students are invited to attend. Interim VP for Student Affairs, Dr. Bob Watson, was the ke)'note speaker and President Norton, bestowed each participating student with a stole. Students were recognized for

their leadership, academic performance, perseverance, and support ofsocialjustice issues on campus. Because underrepresented groups traditionally face additional challenges in degree attainment for a myriad of reasons, this event celebrates their accomplishments. The Jump Start Program which supports the retention of first year students completed the transition sertes on creating social change and academic study tables. These workshops assist students with both academic and social skills to assist with their retention and to contribute to a more inclusive campus community.

STI]DENT SERVICES The bifurcation ofthe Residence Life Department has created Residential Education which is focusing on the development of the student, with emphasis on the LLC (livingJeaming communities). Four new communities (Leadership, Sophomore Year Experience, Transfer Community, and LEAF - Living in an Environmentally Acceptable Fashion) have been added for the 2014-l 5 year. Of the 2013- l4 assignable on-campus beds, 846 were in LLCs. The addition ofthese four new communities will increase the LLC bed count to 1,1 10. The increase in the freshmen class has created a good problem for Residence Life. As of5/13/14, ofthe 1,596 freshmen deposits, 1,220 had been assigned to residence hall beds. There are 259 vacant beds with the possibility of another 62 beds if we move into "over-fil1".

Dining Services ended the semester with positive feedback from students; attending house council and ARHS (Association ofResidence Hall Students) meetings, focus groups, and the spring customer satisfaction survey. This information will be reviewed during the summer to assist in planning for the 2014-15 year. For the tenth year, AVI FoodSystems sponsored the annual Rising Star celebration recognizing student leadership on campus. Ten students were awarded a "star" registered in the Universal Star Registry. SRU's dining program continues to be recognized as a model program. Tours during the spring semester included: Hiram College, Westmoreland County Community College, Bob Evans Restaurants, UPMC Presbyerian, and Community College of Allegheny County. 1,382 students attended the Moonlight Breakfast finals' week kick-offat Boozel Hall on May 5'. The Robert M. Smith Student Center was recognized with the Association of College Unions International Facility Design Award ofExcellence. During the spring semester, the Student Center hosted over 2,200 meetings. A new display ofphotographs ofprominent alumni was installed in the Ballroom pre-function area. Conference Services has contracts signed or pending with 29 summer camps and 8 summer conferences.

STTJDENT WELLNESS The Office ofStudent Conduct (OSC) collaborated with campus offices to ensure Title IX and Clery compliance by participating in conference calls with legal consultants, collaborating on a Clery task force, attending a Title IX investigator conference, implementing website charges, and developing a revised victim resource list. OSC implemented conduct training for new OSC staff. OSC is exploring the investigator model based on the Title lX training to determine a best practice model for hearings involving sexual misconduct. OSC developed a student employee manual as part ofoffice streamlining and student employee professional development. OSC implemented behavioral interventions for incidents including assault, sexual misconduct, and harassment. OSC trained approximately 60 Comrnunity Assistants on hearing board training in collaboration with Residential Life, and additionally trained approximately 20 SRU staff, faculty, and students. OSC's graduate assistant participated

The Student Counseling Center's newly developed Triage and Scope ofPractice allowed for no waitlist throughout the spring semester, with an average wait from Triage to an Intake Appointment at 5.9 days. IJsing our text messaging appoinlment rcminder amenity through Titanium, data showed an overall 2olo decrease in No Show rates and an increase by Io of Student Cancellation rates resulting in better utilization ofappointments for students.

Tlie President has approved tlre merger between Counseling and Development and the Counseling Center under the College of Education. This collaborative reorganization will both strengthen the quality ofthe master's counselor preparation programs offered through the Department of Counseling and Development by creating additional opportunities for high-impact experiential learning, and significantly improve the availability aDd diversity of counseling selvices provided to Slippery Rock University students tl.trough the Counseling Center. Student Health Services (SIIS) collaborating for student success:

Clinical Care: Health care visits continuo to increase, despite reduced enrollment. 15, 779 visits to SHS occurred this academic year, an increase of292 visits despite a reduced enrollment. Collaborative partnerships allowed for besl student outcomes, and this is especially true for our students experiencing mental health concems (a 250olo increase)- Collaborative relationships with the Counseling Center, Retention Services, Student Intervention Services, and the Behavioral Intervenlion Team assisted in the provision of needed evaluation, treatment and services as well as addressing academic responsibilities. A strong relationship with the Center for Community Resources (CCR) is invaluable in addressing rnental bealth crisis and student safety. CCR also prov;ded assistance with admission to psychiatric facilities as indicated by student presentation. The 2417 operation ofSHS allows access for Registered Nurse evaluation and referral for our most fragile studentsHealth Promotion: Educational encounters continue to increase through both programming and marketing campaigns. The Ofilce of Health Promotion has been able to continue to increase the number ofstudents encountered with less resources through our collaborative partnerships. 'fhese partnerships have included Orientation (new this semester, the Coordinator speaks to incoming students about participating in mystudentbody), Enrollment Services, Faculty, AVI, WSRU, SGA, House Council, Adagio Health, UPB, Student Organizations and Greek Life. Wellness/Public Health: SHS partnered with International Services to address a public health concem with increasing nr:mbers of students being sought from countries with high rates of Tuberculosis (TB) infection. The Pennsylvan ia Department of I lealth was a key partner in the care of an intemational student who had previously undiagnosed latent TB infection. The focus ofthe TB protocol for intenrational students is twofold; reducing the risk of infectious disease to the SRU community and assisting individual students. Academic Partnerships SHS staffcontinues to support the Exercise is Medicine partnership with Jxerclse Science faculty by collectjng data on students' exercise habits (data also used for grants and research initiatives), referring to the student trainer program and ARC and reinforcing positive exercise habits. Clinical staffprovided a guest lecture on Infection Control to Athletic Training students. SHS also worked closely with Athletic Training faculty and Athletics to develop a policy for addressing Sickle Cell testing in athletes. The healthcare staff in Student Health Services provided a clinical site for 7 Butler County Community College Nursing (Associate Degree) students. The evaluations by the students indicated this experience was very positive and educational regarding healthcare for the college student. Pat't ofthe SHS experience includes information about SRUs Rlr' to BSN program. The director met with the new Physician Assislant ptogram faculty to discuss ways we could collaborate including clearance for program participation, service review, program review, clinical rotation experiences, and subject exDertise.
