1 University of North Texas Learning Enhancement Grant Application 1. Project Title Online Masters Program in Applied Anthropology 2. Project coordinator Christina Wasson Doug Henry Larry Naylor Mariela Nuñez-Janes Alicia Re Cruz 3. Project abstract The UNT department of anthropology is developing an online masters program in applied anthropology to take advantage of a market opportunity which is not yet met by any other program in the United States. Our goal is to complete all core courses and launch the program by fall We are requesting support from this year s Learning Enhancement Funds for three core courses in the program. The masters degree in applied anthropology, formally approved in 2003, fits well into the university mission and goal of developing exemplary web-based programs and courses. The masters program will foster excellence and innovation in teaching and learning as it addresses the need for alternative methods of program delivery. The UNT department of anthropology is the only applied program in the state of Texas, and the online masters degree will be the first of its kind in the country. Only about fifteen campuses across the nation offer programs in applied anthropology, one of the fastest growing areas of the discipline. The market for this program is statewide, national and international. The demand for graduate study in applied anthropology and web-based, distance learning courses continues to grow at a steady pace. This particular online program is aimed at those students desiring to pursue advanced graduate training in applied anthropology, but where opportunity, distance, work or other commitments currently prevent them from regularly attending classes on a university campus or where opportunities for pursuing a masters in applied anthropology are limited. The department of anthropology is dedicated to continuing growth as a leader in developing high quality web-based instruction, and to increasing the use of new and innovative technology in the delivery of its instructional programs to individuals whose circumstances prevent them from regularly attending classes on the university campus. 4. Description of the project Online Masters Program in Applied Anthropology The UNT department of anthropology is developing an online masters program in applied anthropology to fulfill a need which is currently not met by any other program in the United States. There are about fifteen universities in the US that offer a masters in applied anthropology, and more are under development. The degree is increasingly popular as job opportunities increase in government, private sector, and other fields. However, no university in the United States offers an online program. We thus have an opportunity to target students who wish to obtain a masters in applied anthropology, but who do not reside in proximity to a university offering this program, and who are unable to change their residence due to work or family commitments. 1

2 Our online masters program in applied anthropology, formally approved in 2003, is modeled after the anthropology department s existing face-to-face program in terms of course content and educational objectives. At the same time, the program has been adapted to the different requirements of online teaching and learning. Students will be able to complete the masters degree in two years if they take full course loads. In the first year, students will take the five required core courses, plus a leveling course if they do not have prior coursework in anthropology. They will also attend an orientation during which they will meet faculty and select the members of their graduate committee. During the second year, students will complete their elective courses and their practicum. The department of anthropology received a Teaching with Technology grant to begin the development of the online masters program. We were given funds for two courses. In fact, we used the money to develop three courses. We have therefore already created the leveling course and two out of the five core courses: ANTH 5200 Seminar in Sociocultural Anthropology ANTH 5015 Anthropological Thought and Praxis II ANTH 5020 Quantitative Methods in Anthropology In order to complete the development of the online masters program, we need to create three more core courses and four electives. We plan to complete the three core courses this year, if we receive funding. The electives will then be completed over the following two years. Here is an overview of the development of all courses in the program: Course Yr Compltd Funding Source ANTH 5200 Seminar in Sociocultural Anthropology TwT Grant (Received) ANTH 5015 Anthropological Thought & Praxis II TwT Grant (Received) ANTH 5020 Quantitative Methods in Anthropology TwT Grant (Received) ANTH 5040 Ethnographic & Qualitative Methods ANTH 5010 Anthropological Thought & Praxis I ANTH 5060 Pre-Practicum: Problems & Cases in Appl Anth ANTH Organizational Anthropology ANTH Migrants and Refugees Current Grant Application 2005 Current Grant Application 2005 Current Grant Application 2006 Future Grant 2006 Future Grant ANTH 5030 Medical Anthropology 2007 Future Grant ANTH Anthropology of 2007 Future Grant Education All of the core courses for the masters in applied anthropology will be online by fall 2006, allowing us to initiate the program at that time.

3 The planning of the online masters program is being guided by Christina Wasson. However, the development of the program is very much a collective process that draws on the experience of all faculty. Departmental faculty have extensive knowledge in developing and teaching online undergraduate courses. In addition, three masters courses have already been developed. Courses to be Developed this Year ANTH 5040 Ethnographic & Qualitative Methods will be developed by Lisa Henry. ANTH 5010 Anthropological Thought & Praxis I will be developed by Christina Wasson. ANTH 5060 Pre-Practicum: Problems & Cases in Applied Anthropology will be developed by Tyson Gibbs and Christina Wasson together. We are requesting release time for these three faculty members, as well as funding for student assistants to help collect material for course design, and test the courses when they have been translated into WebCT Vista. Curriculum and Instruction Our department s vision for the online masters program is that our program will be excellent in both content and delivery, and that it will produce highly qualified and well prepared professionals in the field of applied anthropology. Our faculty have created and will continue to create courses that meet the requirements of graduate instruction using innovative virtual pedagogy. The anthropology department faculty are concerned with creating courses that allow students to Engage in collaborative analysis and critique of readings, so as to develop critical thinking skills and deep understanding of materials Generate a high level of involvement Apply lessons to contexts of practice Build community within the program Develop professionally The department s monthly meetings on the online masters program are one opportunity where faculty learn about innovative techniques in virtual pedagogy. We regularly invite guest speakers to demonstrate the outstanding courses they have designed, such as Elizabeth Figa, Shobhana Chelliah and Patricia Cukor-Avila. In addition, two members of the department contribute related areas of expertise. Christina Wasson conducts research in the area of virtual collaboration, and managed a semester-long student project on how faculty and students use WebCT. Mariela Nuñez-Janes specializes in the anthropology of education and thus provides expertise on pedagogical issues. Through all of these resources, we are developing a toolbox of ideas and techniques for innovative virtual pedagogy that will enable us to develop an excellent program. All graduate students admitted into the online masters program will be required to attend a week-long orientation at the UNT campus before beginning the program. Subsequently, all coursework will take place over WebCT. In order to ensure that they become familiar with WebCT Vista and 3

4 associated software, students will be required to access the Vista Student Guide to familiarize themselves with the functions and format of the program. This will be accomplished during the campus orientation. The online program will not differ from the traditional mode of graduate instruction in terms of expectations, course content, or student requirements. The same level of competency will be expected and required in web-based and face-toface instruction formats. All courses in the online masters program in applied anthropology will be presented in a graduate seminar format. The courses will be highly interactive, as opposed to undergraduate courses which are mostly content oriented. The courses will be heavily individualized, they will emphasize student assignments or projects, and will develop critical thinking by encouraging sharing, discussion, and peer reviews. These will take place under instructor guidance as part of regularly scheduled discussions or chat sessions. A generalized graduate seminar template has been developed to assist faculty in the preparation of courses to be offered online. Students enrolled in the online masters program will have access to a multitude of resources for learning. These include the UNT library and anthropology organizations such as the American Anthropological Association, National Association for the Practice of Anthropology, and the Society for Applied Anthropology. Links to their websites and other online resources will be provided in the course content. These will supplement the course material and will aid in student research. Evaluation and Assessment Student learning will be assessed in each course through regular course activities such as assignment postings, assignment reviews and evaluations, and discussions or chats. WebCT Vista tracking will allow for constant review and assessment of individual students by the instructor. As expected of graduate seminars, all students will be required to undertake individual research assignments and share their findings with the class. Students will also work independently on weekly course topics and will be expected to share their work with the rest of the class and the instructor. Each student will be required to post his/her ideas and findings prior to regularly scheduled and structured chats or discussions. These will allow for constant student/student and student/instructor interaction. Student progress in the program will be assessed through their committee members. The committee, particularly the student s chair, will aid him/her in developing a program of study and will monitor the student s progress towards the satisfactory completion of the masters degree. 5. Coordinator s experience with teaching online As indicated above, this application is a collective effort of the anthropology faculty at UNT. Our department was already experimenting with creative pedagogical uses of virtual communication technology in In that year, Alicia Re Cruz designed a series of fifteen innovative video conferences which brought faculty and students from a Mexican university into communication with their counterparts at UNT. Since then, the department has had significant success designing and delivering online courses. 4

5 Anthropology began offering online courses in spring of 2001; by now, a total of 2,754 students have enrolled in them. Larry Naylor has extensive experience developing and teaching undergraduate courses, and received the Pioneer Award from the Center for Distributed Learning. In addition, three masters courses have been created by Larry Naylor, Alicia Re Cruz, and Doug Henry, using a graduate course template. Most of the anthropology faculty have been trained in WebCT. It is our goal to continue the tradition of excellence and innovation in face-toface teaching and learning with our online graduate program. To pursue this goal, Christina Wasson coordinates monthly faculty meetings on the online masters program through which the department continually learns about issues such as course design, program design, and pedagogy in the virtual context. 6.

The department of anthropology will promote the program through advertising in nation-wide anthropology publications and national meetings. When available, departmental funds will be applied to supplement faculty course development. Program enrollment Graduate courses in anthropology are generally not high enrollment courses. However, based on discussion with programs offering individual courses in applied anthropology, higher enrollments than usual can be expected. The online masters program is primarily designed for students residing out of the area (beyond the 50 mile region) and/or classified as out-of-state students. Based on our projections, will be enrolled in the program during its first year of operation, and 30 students in the second year. By the 5 th year, program enrollment is expected to range from students. Class (by year of completion) Completed courses: ANTH 5200 Seminar in Sociocultural Anthropology No. of students projected 5

Market surveys or analysis conducted The department has had significant success with online courses. Anthropology currently offers three web-based undergraduate courses as part of its program of instruction (World Cultures Through Film, designed and taught by David Hartman; American Culture and Society and General Anthropology, both designed and taught by Larry Naylor). All of these courses are experiencing high enrollments and show continued and steady growth. World Cultures Through Film has regularly enrolled over 180 students per semester. The current enrollment for this course is 242 students. General Anthropology began with 61 students in Fall 2001, increased to 1 in Fall 2002, and currently has 168 students. American Culture and Society, taught for the first time in Fall 2002, had an enrollment of 112 students; currently the enrollment is 120 students. Most online courses in anthropology have doubled enrollments since their inception. The enrollments for all of these courses include students from outside the North Texas area. This illustrates both the success and demand of online courses in anthropology. It also reflects a steadily increasing interest in distance learning as an alternative to face-to-face learning. National and local surveys indicate the desire and need for training in Applied Anthropology. The American Anthropological Association (AAA) has documented an increase in the demand and interest in this field. According to the AAA s 1996 Survey of Departments, about half to a third of new Ph.D.s in anthropology take nonacademic positions in government, the private sector, as well as national nonprofit and international associations. This survey indicates that both graduate and undergraduate anthropology students begin their training with academic as well as nonacademic careers in mind. They look for programs that have applied anthropologists. A comprehensive survey of undergraduates at UNT confirmed this national trend, as it found that those planning for more advanced training were interested in applied anthropology. Based on reports from programs that offer courses in applied anthropology elsewhere, graduate course enrollments in applied anthropology tend to exceed the normal enrollment expectations associated with graduate 6

7 courses in other subjects. As attempts to understand and find solutions to local, national, and international issues become more prominent, the demand for professionals with expertise in anthropological knowledge and skills continues to expand. Thus the market for this program is both national and international. No other university in the country offers a complete online graduate program specifically designed for students or practitioners interested in applied anthropology. Given the lack of opportunities for pursuing graduate study in applied anthropology, an online masters program will specifically appeal to individuals already in the workforce, who can benefit from training in applied anthropology, and whose commitments limit their ability to attend classes on university campuses. 10. Marketing plan The program will be promoted widely in order to reach a broad national and international audience. Three strategies will be used to promote the program. One will rely on the web page of the department of anthropology. The website receives about 10,000 hits a month both nationally and internationally. The second will consist of distributing promotional materials to those in the field of anthropology. Advertisements about the program will be published in journals and newsletters of the AAA, the National Association for the Practicing of Anthropology, and the Society for Applied Anthropology (SfAA). Program brochures, flyers, and schedules will be sent to anthropology programs nationwide. As a host and spotlight program for the annual SfAA meeting in the spring of 2004, the department of anthropology was able to informally disseminate information about its plans for an online masters program. Many colleagues, students, and practitioners communicated their interest and excitement about the program. The third strategy will reach non-anthropologists. The program will be advertised in journals and newspapers whose readership shares interests with applied anthropologists. Thus special attention will also be devoted to reaching people interested in design, refugees, health, and education as well as in reaching groups who are attempting to address and solve many of the cultural and social issues affecting the national and international communities. 11. Evaluation plan for the course(s) or program At the conclusion of each course, students will be asked to respond to the CDL survey on the technological aspects of WebCT Vista instruction, and they will be asked to complete an evaluation instrument used in assessing courses and instruction developed by the department especially for distributed learning courses. Assessments will include the following: Teaching What was particularly successful? What needs improvement? Technology Were there any problems with the technology implementation or usage? Students will be required to evaluate the entire online masters program upon completion of their program of study. In addition, the department will conduct follow-up surveys of graduates of the program to determine the need for any changes in content or delivery that graduates may perceive later in 7

8 their careers. Student learning will be assessed with the measures commonly used to evaluate graduate students (class participation, assignment performances, quality of written research projects, examinations, etc.). Comparisons (through testing and evaluation) will be made between the quality of work of traditional (face-to-face) and non-traditional (distance learning enrolled) students. Student satisfaction will be assessed through a distributed learning course evaluation instrument at the individual course level, through exit interviews, and through an alumni survey (normally conducted 3 years after graduation). In addition, students will be able to contact both each other and faculty through electronic mail, telephone contacts, chat rooms, discussion, and assignment boards. Faculty satisfaction with the effectiveness of technology will be assessed through discussions at the department and school levels, and in constant consultation with the CDL staff. 12.
