E-Learning Management Advisory Team

The E-Learning Management Advisory Team (EMAT) was created in 2008, as a cross-functional team focused on improving the overall quality of online learning at Ferris.  The EMAT group has been involved in providing leadership in a number of key areas, including development of appropriate policies for online learning as well as research into best practices and faculty/student perceptions of online learning.

In 2010, the EMAT team was charged by the Vice President of Academic Affairs with the development of a comprehensive plan for online learning at Ferris.  In 2011, that plan, including 11 major recommendations, was approved by the faculty senate and the Dean's Council for adoption at Ferris.

A copy of the plan can be found here: A Plan for E-Learning at Ferris

Since adoption of the 11 recommendations in 2011, the EMAT team has continued to meet monthly to pursue these initiatives, including continuous improvement plans to further drive some of the initiatives.

An update to the Faculty Senate was provided in 2013: April 2013 Update
