Credit Courses Development Possibilities 9 Purdue Extended Campus is looking to move forward with development of new online offerings for the Purdue West Lafayette undergraduate population. These efforts will be in line with the University’s movement in increasing summer enrollment. PEC will strategically look to fund development of courses that will benefit the students. The tool that will be used to identify the courses is the list of those courses 90% or above capacity during the academic year with high enrollments. PEC will begin discussions with colleges on the possibility of new development with the following courses: BIOL 11000MA 16100ME CHEM MA 16200MGMT Courses currently being developed for new offering: CHNS 10100CHNS 10200ITAL COM 32000ANTH 10000HIST OLS 28400MGMT 32300ECE POL 22200POL 23200POL 23500
Credit Courses Development Opportunities 10 Proposed new minor fully online Organizational Leadership & Supervision to be ready for launch summer Research the opportunity to develop additional courses to achieve minors online. Build the 2 nd 8-week course option. Look into the possibility of a 12 week option. This would allow students to get settled into courses and if need to make a change would have an option four weeks into the semester.

Credit Courses Moving Forward…………… 13 What: Distance education and online learning have come to the forefront in higher education. The opportunities are endless and boundaries wide with discussion of credit and non-credit offerings at institutions. The traditional face-to-face learning now has new competition and distance is growing at a double digit rate. The field is very exciting one to be a part of and our unit will play an integral part in the growth and expansion at Purdue. Why: My focus as the associate director would be to create partnerships and build solid relationships with the departments on campus through strategic initiatives and negotiations as I have began to do with over 70 courses online and multiple colleges participating in online learning. How: Engaging the university and the community by excellent communication skills and enhancing student retention and graduation rates by being a student advocate, using my current role with managing enrollments of well over 8,000 as experience. Advancing a culture of excellent customer care by being a vocal leader and establishing a good work environment and promoting and marketing programs by being an innovator would be of utmost importance.
