Welcome Online Learning Faculty
Carson-Newman’s faculty is among not only East Tennessee’s but also the world’s most outstanding Christian scholar/teachers and are essential to fulfilling the college’s mission. They are the reason Carson-Newman can offer bachelor’s degrees in over fifty majors and master’s degree programs in behavioral health, business, education, theology, and nursing. The Online Learning faculty uses innovative web technologies in their teaching, advising, and mentoring methods while emphasizing academic excellence within a supportive Christian environment.
Purpose of this Handbook
Carson-Newman has several all online Graduate programs in six disciplines. Undergraduates may supplement their traditional face-to-face learning with online courses offered in their majors when they are away from Carson-Newman on breaks or unable to fit one in their daily schedule. Beginning 2013 C-N anticipates offering a Degree Completion program allowing adult learners to finish their degree in the most flexible and convenient way possible.
The Online Learning Faculty Handbook is intended to serve as a reference guide for faculty teaching one of Carson-Newman’s undergraduate classes, graduate programs or degree completion offered online. It is also a helpful resource for those teaching blended courses which are partially online or for the faculty considering teaching online.
This supplements, but does not replace the Carson-Newman Faculty Handbook. The Carson-Newman annual Academic Catalog contains the academic calendar, student policies, course descriptions and other valuable information such as admissions procedures and financial information. The Carson-Newman intranet, EagleNet, will provide you with up-to-date communication and documentation to assist you in the training and support for your teaching as well as the administrative functions of your online classroom management.
Please feel free to ask for further clarification or information from your program coordinator, department chair, the Online Learning director, and the offices of the Registrar, Financial Assistance, or Human resources.
