Online Program Council
UWM’s Online Program Council is a network of faculty, staff, and administrators who are currently involved in the planning, implementation, and delivery of online degrees or certificates. Membership is composed of one or more representatives from every online degree or certificate program at UWM, as well as other faculty and staff interested in online programming. The Council is sponsored by the Provost’s Office, and is not a governance body. The Council co-chairs are currently Laura Pedrick and Diane Reddy.
The Council has three primary objectives:
- Function as a community of practice to encourage adoption of best practices in online teaching and learning.
- Facilitate sharing of information about online program development and delivery with respect to topics such as: student orientation and support, faculty development, technology, pricing, marketing and recruitment, etc.
- Share expertise and provide peer support for faculty, staff, and administrators exploring new online programs
The Online Program Council typically meets monthly during the academic year. The schedule for 2019-20 follows and you can also download the 2019-20 Online Program Council Meeting Schedule here. The meeting schedule for 2020-21 will be posted when available.
