While Eastern New Mexico University (ENMU) is the third largest school in the state, it covers more ground than any other university. The entire eastern part of the state, to be exact. In the dean’s quest to make education accessible to the region’s traditional, non-traditional and dual-enrollment students (high school students taking college courses), she had to think outside the traditional classroom experience.
Armed with a Title V grant, ENMU devised a plan to support graduate programs and other key academic initiatives with Mediasite as the central educational technology to bring it all together. Join Mary Fanelli Ayala, Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, as she shares how they successfully met their ambitious timeline – from pilot to full-scale, campus-wide deployment in less than 12 months. She’ll outline the process of getting faculty onboard with some of the most ground-breaking initiatives in higher education including:
- Facilitating a flipped instruction pilot Faculty are exploring pre-recording their lectures for students to watch prior to class, leaving class time dedicated to dynamic discussions and interactions
- Creating hybrid classes Students in the classrooms and online interact simultaneously via live webcasts
- Branching out into asynchronous distance learning
- Helping high school students earn college credits New Mexico’s Dual Enrollment program allows high school students to take college classes, either on campuses or online, to earn high school and college credit.
- Recording special events and guest speakers, providing professional development online, connecting alumni and more
