Online Honors Courses
Share |

In the wake of COVID-19 outbreaks, many college campuses are disbanding in-person classes and shifting to online coursework for at least the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester. Many NCHC members are searching for resources as they make this shift to online coursework. 


At least two sessions at NCHC19 in New Orleans addressed this topic:

Honors Online: Successes and Challenges
Victoria Bryan, Cleveland State Community College
Jill Swarner, North Central Texas College
Jacob Arnold, North Central Texas College
Patricia Cardozo, National University
Melodee Alexander, Cleveland State Community College
Jane Honeycutt, Northeast State Community College
Lori Wisdom-Whitley, Everett Community College
Kathleen Stephens, Richland College

This roundtable brings together voices from various institutions to discuss successes and challenges associated with developing quality online honors course offerings. Each panelist will share their experiences before we open the discussion to questions/suggestions from the audience to develop a working list of ideas for successful online course development.
