Session Type: Poster Session
Delivery Format: Poster Session
In recent years, most institutions have begun the transition to create offerings through online learning, but it is not an endeavor to enter without strategic planning, administrative and faculty support, and perhaps, most important, examples of success. This session will provide a holistic approach to blueprint modeling for online program success.

Outcomes: Investigate St. Mary's procedures and practices to transition historically residential degrees into successful online programs and certificates * Analyze institutional offerings to discern possible candidates for online transition using blueprint modeling * Create an institutional blueprint for online program development through backward design modeling between academic leadership, faculty, and curriculum innovation
