Leadership in Distance Education

DEPM 604


An introduction to the organization, management, and administration of distance education systems. Specific issues covered include management theory, organizational behavior, leadership roles, human resource management, employee relations, the impact of information technology, faculty/staff development, inter-institutional collaboration, planning, policy, and change. Both education and training environments are explored, including the knowledge and skills necessary to function effectively in either type of organizational setting.



The Leadership in Distance Education course was so beneficial in helping me understand exactly how important all students are to the MDE program. Overall, this course taught me that we (students, instructors, researchers, etc.) all must become leaders of distance edition in ensure that it continues to break barriers and succeed. This course also helped me to differentiate between management and leadership, and shared with me techniques to become a leader in the field.
