Transcript

  • 1. THREE POST-GRADUATE ISSUES ADISTANCE EDUCATION UNIVERSITY SHOULD ADDRESS
  • 2. HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN? Most of our learners havent set foot inside a university classroom in many years but they found their way to us at the insistence of a little voice in the back of their heads that urged them forward into more education.
  • 3. HOW DO YOU CHOOSE AN EDUCATIONAL ORGANIZATION?How do our learners know which educationalinstitution would best meet their needs?What questions should they have been asking?What answers should they have heard?
  • 4. RETURNING TO SCHOOL There are countless educational organizations out there offering adult degree programs these days and the faculty and staff at the Intercultural Open University Foundation know that a return to school can be overwhelming.
  • 5. MATURE STUDENTS Thats especially true for mature learners who have busy careers, family considerations and charitable interests to tend.
  • 6. THREE DECADES AND THREE QUESTIONS  As a respected provider of distributed education at the Masters and PhD levels, we have three decades of experience in mentoring mature adults to their chosen degree and we feel any potential purveyor of higher education should answer three questions well:
  • 7. FLEXIBILITYIs the educational experience the organizationprovides flexible enough to make it possible for astudent to pursue their degree and still maintaintheir work and family commitments?
  • 8. EXPERTISEDoes the educationalinstitution have theappropriate expertisenecessary for delivering aquality education?
  • 9. SUPPORTAre students well supported in their efforts toobtain their degrees?
  • 10. OUR RESULTS?The IOUF earns high marks from our students -who we call "learners" - in all three of these areas.
  • 11. ONLINE WORKAlthough we have offices in the USA and inSpain, our learners work towards and obtain adegree without having to be present on a physicalcampus.
  • 12. TIME COMMITMENT All communication and course work are completed online and learners direct their own curricula in consultation with a thesis advisor. Working at their own pace, they complete their distance learning program when and as their schedules permit.
  • 13. FACULTY AND STAFF IOUF faculty members are respected academics with decades of experience in their chosen fields. Many hold concurrent teaching positions at other universities and some are contributing to the development of their selected fields as active members of the workforce. All faculty and staff work for the IOUF on a volunteer basis.
  • 14. ACCREDITATION Cooperative educational agreements signed in 2011 mean our graduates receive accredited degrees from the Universidad Azteca and the Universidad Central de Nicaragua, as well as from the IOUF.
  • 15. MENTORSHIP Our learners are fully supported in their distance learning efforts and each one is assigned a faculty mentor who oversees all aspects of their education, providing input and assistance where necessary.
  • 16. ARE YOU A SOCIAL CHANGE AGENT? Wed appreciate the opportunity to explore the possibility of welcoming you as a learner in our University Foundation and wed love to help you in your own efforts to make the world a better place through academic achievement.
