The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) will share their establishment of a National Distance Education and Technological Advancement (DETA) Research Center to conduct cross-institutional data collection with 2-year and 4-year Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs).

UWM’s partners in this endeavor are the University of Wisconsin System, UW-Extension, Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC), and EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI).

The objective of the DETA Research Center is to promote student access and success through evidence-based online learning practices and learning technologies. Specifically, the DETA Center will identify and evaluate effective course and institutional practices in online learning (including competency-based education) for underrepresented individuals (i.e., economically disadvantaged, adult learners, disabled) through rigorous research.

Co-PIs and Directors are Tanya Joosten and Diane Reddy.
