Common Interest Groups
WCET's Common Interest Groups
- Join with colleagues tackling the same issues and problems.
- Share proven solutions.
- Jointly create statements of "good practice."
- Develop resources to inform and advance e-learning.
WCET's Common Interest Groups (CIGs) are collections of members who have like interests and come together to share information and work cooperatively around some unifying issue.
While each CIG establishes its own unique agenda and goals, the overall purpose of the CIGs is to build upon the shared knowledge and experiences of the group to create resources, promising practices, and other opportunities to inform and advance effective practices in higher education.
Examples of some the valuable resources produced by WCET's CIGs include:
- Webcast Programs: Where Do I Send My RFP, Coaching and Mentoring Programs, Web and Videoconferencing Solutions, and Learning Analytics: The Future is Now.
- Tools: Matrix of Methods of Communications during LMS Implementation.
- Collections: Bibliographies and collections of institutional policies, such as e-learning consortia policies, institutional policies on academic integrity. Example: The E-learning Consortia wiki contains information on many consortia.
- Advisory: Guidance on the development of surveys on educational technology products.
WCET is supporting the following CIGs:
Focus: Strategies to promote academic integrity in online learning and the technologies and processes available to verify the identity of students enrolled in online courses and programs.
Focus: Models and strategies used by e-learning consortia to efficiently and effectively operate as multi-institutional service providers.
