Distance Education Committee

The mission of the Distance Education Committee is to develop policies and promote practices that contribute to the quality and growth of distance education at Pasadena City College.

With the understanding that faculty should have the primary responsibility for developing policies and promoting distance education practices, the Committee will support a learner-centered program designed to further student success by making recommendations to the Academic Senate regarding:

  • Curriculum and instruction, evaluation and assessment, technology, accessibility, infrastructure, and academic support services that affect all modes of distance education course delivery.
  • Policy issues that may affect the union contract, including but not limited to intellectual property rights, enrollment, office hours, online course development and management, and technical support.
  • Ongoing faculty development and consistent support in the areas of pedagogy and technology in order to ensure that faculty who teach distance education courses are able to provide high quality learning environments for the students of Pasadena City College.
