Taskforce for Hybrid and Online Education
UC Riverside is currently developing a plan to enhance campus capacity in online learning. In February 2018, Provost Larive created the Taskforce for Hybrid and Online Education to address the following questions:
- What are the main motivations for pursuing more hybrid/online instruction and what are the associated benefits that UCR stands to gain?
- Which courses or types of courses should be prioritized?
- What should be our goals for the next 3-5 years?
- What should be our strategy to achieve those goals? In particular, how should we organize ourselves? What, if any, additional staffing and technology needs are anticipated? What kinds of space and financial resources are anticipated?
- Other issues the taskforce deems important for establishing a coherent hybrid/online strategy for our campus.
