80.06 Attachment DL-5 Issued: August 16, 2001 Evaluation of the Credentials of Other Institution's Faculty for Distance Education Courses
There may be situations in which an individual employed by another institution is teaching a distance- learning course for which the University is awarding credit. The purpose of this procedure is to provide guidance concerning the verification of the qualifications of the instructor.
2. General Provisions
2.1 It is anticipated that the "contracting" for the services of an individual employed by another institution will be a rare and infrequent event.
2.2 Under a normal situation, the individual would be teaching the course for the institution that is the employer and the student would transfer credit to the home institution.
2.3 The contract for services is to be initiated by the head of the academic unit, which will be granting credit for the course.
2.4 All contracts and agreements must follow the normal contract review process and be approved by the President or his designee.
3.1 If the individual is employed as a member of the faculty in an institution accredited by SACS, or another regional accrediting agency, and would be teaching within the individual's professional field, no further review of credentials is needed.
3.2 If the individual does not qualify under item 3.1 above, the head of the academic unit is to review the credentials of the instructor and approve the appointment for each course to be taught.
3.3 If the individual is using instructional materials which were not developed under the supervision of the University Distance Learning Council, appropriate documentation is to be submitted to the head of the academic unit confirming that the materials were developed under similar guidelines.
