Abstract

This session will provide FIE participants at all levels of experience with distance learning - specifically, internet-based distance learning - an opportunity to focus on the opportunities and pitfalls common to teaching in this medium. This session will focus on three areas: 1) common mistakes of both novices and experienced practitioners and how to avoid them, 2) the unavoidable challenges unique to distance learning and strategies for meeting them, and 3) opportunities for applying distance learning approaches, techniques, and experiences to enhancing research efforts, developing 'multiple-duty' instructional materials, and envisioning engineering education significantly ahead of the 'cutting edge'.
