Address Complexities, Mitigate Risk & Protect Your Institution
Multiple, meaningful definitions for online, hyflex, hybrid and distance learning are used by regulators that can differ from terminology commonly used by institutions and the public. This inconsistent and sometimes conflicting terminology can influence how institutions are meeting various compliance and reporting obligations and creates confusion for faculty, administrators, and students. How an institution labels the instructional modality of a course can have implications for accreditation and the applicability of unique federal, state and reciprocity requirements. Mistakes and non-compliance can be costly, time consuming and frustrating for instructors and students.
Gather your faculty, staff, and administrators involved in online and distance education and curriculum innovation developers as our expert presenters lay the foundation for a more collaborative and shared approach to addressing compliance challenges that cut across multiple domains and offer a better understanding of technological solutions that are available to support compliance efforts in a more automated process.
Given the current, highly complex regulatory framework for online and remote learning, this session is a must to better understand the nuanced definitions when fulfilling various compliance and reporting obligations. Position your campus with the opportunity to collaborate and gain critical stakeholder input to ensure innovation can continue alongside defensible procedures and safeguards that mitigate financial and reputational risk to your institution.
You will gain crucial and actionable takeaways that will help you:
- Develop and promote comprehensive guidance that covers instructional modality labels for courses and programs using applicable percentage-based thresholds and adding compliance considerations and resources – ensure you are remaining compliant with the unique federal, state, and reciprocity requirements for accreditation.
- Position your campus with the opportunity to collaborate and gain critical stakeholder input to ensure innovation can continue – develop defensible procedures and safeguards that mitigate financial and reputational risk to your institution.
- Foster a collaborative and shared approach to addressing compliance challenges that cut across multiple domains – explore automated processes that support compliance efforts and may be available through the student information system (SIS) used by the institution.
- Create an interdisciplinary working group with representatives from key units (e.g., accreditation, financial aid, registrar, online learning, legal, veteran and military services) with a compliance role in online or interstate education and student disclosures – build a foundation that is inclusive of campus-wide constituents and avoid costly and non-compliance nightmares.
- Identify current institutional landscape for noncredit activities and whether opportunities for centralized course and learner data collection may exist – be proactive in positioning your institution for new reporting and compliance responsibilities that may be released this spring.
