Distance education creates a unique situation for faculty communication with students and school staff. Faculty-student interaction plays a key role in student retention. Additionally, faculty satisfaction depends upon effective communication with school personnel. How does your institution ensure your students receive the instructional support they need to succeed? How do you make certain students engage in active learning with faculty? What school procedures are implemented to facilitate seamless communication between faculty and school staff? Delve into Weston Distance Learning’s Little Black Book to discover successful communication strategies for your students and faculty.
