Dr. Josh Hawley will present at the Institute for Population Research Seminar (IPR Seminar) which is titled: Three Essays Exploring Higher Education Outcomes Using State Administrative Records. The seminar will take place on Tuesday, February 19th from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm in 38 Townshead Hall.
The presentation will focus on the following research questions that the OERC has answered based on its data: How participation in developmental education (non credit remedial courses in math and English) changes the likelihood of completing a university degree; How student financial supports (need-based financial aid) alters student progress in completing a higher education degree; How student dropout from a registered apprenticeship depends on the organizational structure of the apprenticeship arrangement.

Dr. David Stein, Educational Studies (EHE), and his team have received a grant from the Office of Distance Education and eLearning. His project was selected from a strong application pool by a team of faculty, staff, and students assembled from throughout the university. Dr. Stein and his team will use the grant to develop an open, online course designed to help graduate students to develop and conduct their own online teaching.
The course will give students important introductions to essential skills and best practices for online teaching and the course itself will provide them experience as an online student. The course will also reduce a gap in the current preparation for online instruction and help OSU graduate students develop valuable skills. This project will debut with a pilot course section during Fall 2013. After the pilot, the course will be available to any students looking for self-paced training about how to teach online.
