4 PAGE 4 OCTOBER 2010 EDUCATION SUPPLEMENT PA TIMES Lessons Learned from the National Online MPA-IG Program at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice Jay P. Hamilton In the Fall of 2009 John Jay College of Criminal Justice, City University of New York, launched its first distance learning program: The National-Online Master of Public Administration Inspector General Program (MPA-IG). The Master of Public Administration Inspector General Program is unique among MPA and Public Policy programs. It concentrates on the assessment and oversight of performance and integrity in public and independent agencies. Given the continued growth of the inspection and oversight field and offices of inspectors general, the college decided an MPA-IG program to be an ideal pilot program for online instruction. John Jay College s mission is well suited to fill this niche of Public Administration. This program is being developed in conjunction with the Association of Inspectors General, which is the leading national professional organization associated with the inspection and oversight field. The program uses a cohort model where students follow a common set of courses over the program s four semesters. They take three courses each semester and remain with their cohort throughout the program. In addition to the 12 core courses, students are responsible for finding the credit equivalent of two additional courses. These additional courses must be approved by the program directors. This core curriculum is more restrictive than the on campus MPA including the substitution of inspection and oversight specific courses for general public administration courses. For example, the online program requires the course Assessments, Audits and Investigations in Human Resources instead of the on campus program s required Human Resources Management course. The program requires yearly attendance at a conference of the Association of Inspectors General. Each year the program directors and faculty decide which of the two conferences for the students to attend. Students must attend the conference sessions, meet in person with their current classes and attend program-wide meetings. Lessons Learned Faculty Leadership is Critical. In the development phase of the program, a core set of instructors met regularly to develop the curriculum, work on their individual courses and design the program s administration. The availability of instructional release time during this development phase was critical in encouraging the full participation of the The Concierge Model works. The program administrator serves as a direct connection for students to all the essential services from admissions straight through to graduation audits. faculty. It was during the developmental phase and the continued regular meetings of the faculty that many of the following lessons learned emerged. Integrated curriculum requires that every instructor knows what every other instructor is doing. Meetings to review each other s course design improved overall content quality and reduced overlap of material. Not all of the instructors need experience teaching online, but a majority should have several years of online teaching experience. For a small program, even admissions should be overseen by a faculty committee. The Concierge Model Works. Providing student services is one of the most challenging aspects of starting an online program. The existing student service infrastructure was not designed for students who cannot physically go to the required offices. The online program utilizes a concierge or one-stop for all student services. The program administrator serves as a direct connection for students to all the essential services from admissions straight through to graduation audits. Having a dedicated administrator reduces the run-around for students giving them the reassurance that they have someone they know and trust who is working for them. The concierge model reduces the need for duplicating administrative offices; when the program administrator calls on a certain office those administrators instantly know they are dealing with an online student issue. The program does become dependent on the program administrator and it is likely that the model will not scale-up; as the program grows additional concierges will need to be added. A Common Look/Feel is Essential. From a student s perspective, taking one online course as part of a regular semester is substantially different than taking three or four courses online. For this reason, the courses in an online program should have a common look or feel. Course pages should be simple with a minimum amount of duplication. Designers should strive to reduce both the amount of click-through and scrolling. An individual course with excessive scrolling and clicking through is tolerable, but it becomes unbearable when taking three courses. While a common look/feel is essential, instructors want to See LESSONS LEARNED, pg. 6 Public Administration Master of Public Administration (M.P.A.)

The regular meeting of faculty helps to close the gap between the need for a common look/feel and desire for instructional freedom. This requires discipline and compromise among the faculty, but also serves as another way to integrate the curriculum. Meaningful Convening Event. The program s requirement of attendance at selected semiannual conferences of the Association of Inspectors General serves several key functions. First, the conference serves as direct link to the professional community most of the students either already work in or will be seeking employment in. Second, the in-person contact allows for student authentication and the ability to fully proctor exams. Third, the convening event allows the students to bond together in a way that online chats and live video conferencing does not. Fourth, the presence of the student body at the conference serves as an excellent marketing tool. Many attendees at the conference are either seeking additional education or are in positions of influence and may recommend the program to their employees. Supportive Technical Teams. Even though most of the instructors come into the program with online teaching experience it is critical to have instructional technical support. To deliver a common look/feel, multimedia content needs to be produced by a dedicated technical team. It is much easier to maintain control over the common look when the course sites are prepared by someone other than the instructors. For example, we use narrated power point presentations. Instead of several different formats, the production team delivers a standard format. This not only makes viewing easier for students, it frees up instructor's time to devote to content development. It works best if the technical team has a faculty leader. Online programs need certain faculty members who lead the rest of the group into new technologies. The use a technical team requires sufficient lead-time in course preparation. This is another good argument for the support of instructional release time in the semesters before teaching in the program. Student Preparedness Matters. Students frequently overestimate their ability to meet the demands of an online course; this overestimation becomes magnified in online programs involving several courses at once. They find the time commitments are not easily squeezed between the routine events of their lives. To help students self-select into an appropriate academic program, informational materials should clearly define the features of the delivery mode, expected levels of online participation and off-line study. The admissions process should require a written statement on why the applicant wants a particular program, both in terms of the content and the delivery mode. Engaged Students Improve the Program. Student feedback has been essential to correcting the small things that go wrong. Students can quickly identify problem areas and present potential solutions. They should be given multiple avenues for expressing their concerns. ASPA member Jay P. Hamilton is deputy director of the National Online MPA-IG Program at John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

8 PAGE 8 OCTOBER 2010 EDUCATION SUPPLEMENT PA TIMES Changing Routines Luz Mairym López-Rodríguez Congratulations, you are officially a doctor! Receiving that call from my dissertation chair, eight years after starting my degree was one of the most gratifying calls I have ever received. Why a phone call instead of a personal meeting, because I was in an online program, and by that time, I had not even met my dissertation chair. Deciding between an online program and traditional education to pursue a degree is a personal process. However, once the universities and programs are identified, there are three things that could influence the decision process: computer access and knowledge, time management and organization skills. Computer access is basic because that will become the classroom. It will be your best friend during the program of study. Not only is the access, also know it, like it, and explore its new tools. Online education has different features, such as live classroom and chat room that maybe are new for many people. However, the assistance of the technical support department and the tutorials help understanding these tools. If computer access is not a problem, let see time management. One of the advantages of online program is that you can go to the classroom at times were traditional education do not allow it. However, is recommended to establish a schedule of work since the first day. Remember that because it is an online there are three things that could influence the decision process: computer access and knowledge, time management and organization skills. program, must of the people work and continue with their personal routines. When I am going to access my classes, prepare my homework, and investigate? Once the schedule is established, it should be discussed with family members and especially with the kids. The cooperation and support of everyone is necessary, mostly when due dates of final projects are coming. Having organization skills strengths the process of balancing work, family, and study. It does not mean that if a person is not organized can t survive, but, it easiest the process. Some of the recommendations are: prepare yourself to each class before it starts; find the books and materials; develop a schedule of work; identify the assignments and ask the questions with time, deliver the assignments before the due date; and, if is not a live class, establish the days in which you will be participating in the class forum. What change? Driving or taking public transportation to the school, be in a classroom with people, and many other things. Changing from traditional to online education means becoming your own boss. I decided when, how and where. It was my experience. I do not regret it and still recommend it to anyone. Enjoy it and wait for that exciting call. Once the degree is completed, the next will be better.
