AbstractSBU proposes building innovative OPEN blended/online Korean and Japanese foreign language courses to meet the growing needs and demands of our current precollegiate and collegiate students. The online and blended modalities of content delivery for these courses will be the first of their kind at SBU. We will share the innovative technologies and best practices used to build and implement these courses with the OPEN SUNY Network. We will then publish research findings comparing face-to-face to online/blended learning outcomes in these courses, as well as the impact of the learning environment and student factors on transactional distance, social presence, teacher presence, and cognitive presence. SBU has gathered staff and faculty across interdisciplinary departments and commitments from various Centers and Organizations within and external to the campus to make this project feasible. With these courses, we hope to share our pioneering innovations in the field of online and blended learning.
DescriptionDeveloping and teaching online courses require different attitudes from instructors and new approaches to instructional priorities, revised student-instructor relationships, new course requirements and expectations, as well as innovative pedagogical tools.
