The thirteenth session that I am blogging here at SITE 2017 related to K-12 Online and Blended Learning is:
Revising the iNACOL Quality Standards for Online Education: Considerations for Students with Disabilities
Presider: Brian Arnold, Michigan State University, United States
To improve service delivery online the proposed presenters undertook a review process to incorporate research and practical understanding about serving students with disabilities into the iNACOL National Standards for Quality Online Teaching (2011a), iNACOL National Standards for Quality Online Courses (2011b), and iNACOL National Standards for Quality Online Programs (2011c). The purpose of this session will be to share our rationale and process in determining the need for revisions, describe our procedures, and then present our findings in the form of revision suggestions. Finally, we will offer suggestions as to the implementation of these proposed revisions and discuss the ways in which we see these revisions improving teaching and learning experiences in online schools, especially for students with disabilities or other learning difficulties.
Please note that none of the presenters from this session showed up.
