A Q&A with Rutgers Online Learning Conference Keynote Speaker Mindy Hintze

Mindy

Students today are digital natives, and if we do not meet them where they are, in that digital space, we are going to lose them, says Mindy Hintze, upcoming keynote speaker for the Rutgers Online Learning Conference to be held on March 13, 2017. “Online learning is here to stay,” she relates. Hintze speaks from experience; she completed her own master’s degree coursework entirely online, which allowed her to study anytime, anywhere, while still working and caring for her family.

Only 10 percent of students were enrolled in online learning in 2002, but that figure jumped to 30 percent by 2010, Hintze says. About 5.8 million students were enrolled in at least one distance learning course in fall 2014, according to Online Report Card:  Tracking Online Education in the United States,´ in a report by Babson Survey Research Group.

The Language of Learning: International Law Scholar Taps Instructional Design, Part 2

Dilafruz Nazarova sees reflection of herself in her computer screen

Part 2: Collaborating with a Specialist on Learning & Tools

The online course environment is an attractive instructional option for graduate-level programs. In fields as diverse as business and social work, online courses draw people who work full-time, have family responsibilities, and live some distance from campus.

Dilafruz Nazarova knew that the students coming to her Rutgers political science course shared these characteristics. She also knew that online learning could offer a rigorous learning environment.

But she didn’t know how to get there.

While she had taught in face-to-face classrooms, Nazarova wanted professional guidance in transitioning to an online teaching environment. At first she was unsure about what instructional technology could offer her and her students.
