Dr. Jory Hadsell, Executive Director, CVC-OEI/@ONE, Foothill-De Anza CCD | What is on the CVC-OEI roadmap for the coming year? This session features the Executive Director, Dr. Jory Hadsell, who will provide a brief update and share insights. Faculty, distance education coordinators, and administrators are encouraged to attend and bring questions for a town hall style conversation. This past year, the Online Education Initiative (OEI), California Virtual Campus (CVC), and Online Network of Educators (@ONE) consolidated into a single statewide initiative, the California Virtual Campus – Online Education Initiative, bringing students access to course section availability data across 56 colleges, over 60 online Associate Degrees for Transfer (ADTs), and streamlined enrollment automation between colleges allowing students to combine financial aid and coursework toward their degree path.
The CVC-OEI also includes leading professional development opportunities for faculty, opportunities for peer online course review by fellow faculty, and “untethered” events building a community of online educators in the California Community Colleges. Students benefit from access to Canvas across all CCCs, with embedded resources such as online counseling, online tutoring, readiness for online learning, name and gender identification tools that enhance online equity, and tools that support community building. Currently 56 CCCs are members of the CVC-OEI Consortium. What’s next for CVC-OEI?
