RESOURCES REQUIRED: Faculty: Existing department full-time faculty Existing faculty members will be given to option of teaching courses as an alternative to an oncampus course or as overload courses for compensation. All faculty members, especially junior faculty, interested in teaching online courses as overloads will need to approval of the Department Chair and AddRan Dean. This approval process is required to ensure minimal impact on tenure and promotion progress. Only faculty in good standing will be considered for overload teaching. Furthermore, faculty interested in teaching online courses must be certified to teach online courses through TCU s Koehler Center. Teaching courses as overload will ensure no impact on current on-campus course offerings. If a junior faculty member that has committed to teaching an online course as an overload is unable to teach for reasons related to the tenure process before the start of the course, tenured and senior faculty will teach the course. If the tenure work is negatively impacted during the course of an online class, a tenured faculty member will assist in the course. Junior faculty is under no obligation to teach any online courses. It is the responsibility of the Department Chair 3

4 to ensure progress of the tenure and promotion process and the teaching requirements of the online program are met. Non-department faculty interested in teaching online courses must be certified to teach online courses through TCU s Koehler Center prior to teaching online classes. For the consideration of this program, one tenure-track position in 2013 has been granted to the department. This additional faculty member will increase the teaching capacity of the department by five courses. The online program will require two courses each semester the first year and four courses each semester in subsequent years with two simultaneous cohorts. The additional faculty member will ensure the teaching requirements are met both for online and oncampus courses. TCU non-department full-time faculty Additional teaching can be provided by full-time faculty from other TCU departments in related fields. The interdisciplinary nature of criminal justice and criminology allows for faculty from other disciplines, such as Sociology, Anthropology, Political Science, Psychology, and Economics, to teach courses. Compensation will offered to non-departmental faculty members interested in teaching courses as overloads. It is up to the faculty member to get approval for teaching online courses from their respective Department Chairs and other supervisors. All TCU faculty members must be certified for fully online teaching through the TCU Koehler Center. Please see attachment: Letter of support from Dr. Morrison Wong, Chair of Sociology and Anthropology. Non-TCU full-time faculty Additional faculty from other institutions can be considered for teaching online courses. Due to the nature of distance learning, additional faculty can conduct courses remotely. Non-TCU faculty can be considered for their expertise in a particular area. Compensation will be offered to non-tcu faculty members interested in teaching courses. It is the responsibility of the faculty member to obtain any approvals from their respective schools to teach at TCU. All non-tcu personnel interested in teaching online courses must be certified to teach online courses through TCU s Koehler Center or equivalent certification body prior to teaching online classes. Note: All students and faculty will be located in Texas and other approved states in order to be in compliance with accreditation requirements until TCU establishes contractual agreements with different state requirements. Adjunct faculty Adjunct faculty can be considered for teaching online courses. The Department of Criminal Justice currently uses a variety of adjunct faculty with varying backgrounds in the criminal justice field. Such faculty can provide instruction that is both academic and experience-oriented. The adjunct faculty that have taught in the Criminal Justice Department includes a chief of police, a judge, a variety of criminal and civil lawyers, former federal agents, probation and parole officers, police officers, and other criminal justice professionals. All adjunct faculty 4

5 interested in teaching online courses must be certified to teach online courses through TCU s Koehler Center or equivalent certification body prior to teaching online classes. Training and Technical: All instructors must be certified through the TCU Koehler Center s Teaching Fully Online course prior to online teaching. The course instructs on proper online teaching methods and effective strategies to ensure quality of teaching in the Pearson LearningStudio environment. The addition of the online program can put additional strain on the Koehler Center s resources. The proposed program has an IT Support line-item to compensate for such additional resources. Space: N/A Equipment: The Koehler Center will manage all additional server space required and maintain the online environment, including software updates and additional training if necessary. Additional technical support can be obtained through Pearson. Library: Students enrolled in the program will be granted full library access online and oncampus. No additional resources will be required. Additional student assistance can be obtained from the TCU Social Science Librarian. Please see attached library resources sheet for list of journal resources. Writing resources: Students will have access to the TCU William L. Adams Center for Writing. Please see letter of support from center Director Dr. Steve Sherwood. Justification for the Program 1. Demand There is currently a large demand for online education in Criminal Justice and Criminology. Several key audiences can be served, including professionals working in the criminal justice field, TCU alumni, and prospective doctoral students. Without having advertised the program, the department has received numerous inquiries from interested individuals ranging from police officers to current students and alumni. 2. Other Programs A number of ranking programs have established successful online graduate programs in criminology and criminal justice. These include top 5 criminology schools such as the University of Cincinnati and University of California, Irvine. The presence of these top schools signals online graduate education as accepted practice and a legitimate means of education. 5

6 3. AddRan School s Mission and Vision Mission Vision To advance life-long learning and discovery in the humanities and social sciences and to develop critical thinking, analytical, and communication skills that prepare students for successful careers in our global society. To become a liberal arts college nationally recognized for innovative learning and critical inquiry that enhances our environment, improves the human condition, and develops ethical leaders. This program furthers AddRan school s mission and vision in focusing on the development of critical thinking, analytic, and communication skills in an innovative learning environment that is relevant to the future of higher education. Moreover, the presence of TCU s reputation in this online space can further enhance the university s profile locally, regionally, and nationally. CHANGE IN TEACHING LOAD: It is anticipated that the teaching load will minimally impact faculty. To minimize any impact on tenure and promotion, the following guidelines will be used: 1. A maximum of teaching one overload course per year in this program is allowed for each faculty member. 2. Teaching an online course requires the approval by the Department Chair and AddRan Dean. 3. Junior faculty who commit to teaching can back out before the start of the course, in which case, a tenured faculty member or adjunct faculty will teach the course. Assistance from tenured faculty is available during the course if time for research becomes an issue. 4. The instruction candidates can include full-time tenure-track department faculty, TCU faculty in disciplines other than criminal justice, criminal justice adjunct faculty, and qualified faculty from other institutions. All instructors must be certified for teaching fully online through TCU s Koehler Center. It is anticipated that faculty members will serve as thesis committee chairs and committee members for students choosing to complete a thesis. Tenured faculty will primarily serve as thesis committee chairs with junior faculty serving as committee members unless approved by the Department Chair. Changes to the department to facilitate impact of program: 1. One additional tenure-track faculty line granted for Instruction capacity expanded to adjunct faculty, non-department TCU faculty, and non- TCU faculty. 6

An additional request has been made by the library to prepare for supplemental materials in the form of journal subscriptions, books, ebooks, multimedia, and other needs. The needs of the department are managed by the TCU social science librarian. Student Access All enrolled online TCU students can access electronic resources through proxy via the library website (www.lib.tcu.edu). In addition, inter-library loans (ILL) service is available for electronic delivery if any additional materials. Physical books and journals can be sent directly to students from the library, including ILL materials. Students can make these requests online. Additional assistance in accessing and obtaining resources is available from TCU s Social Sciences Librarian. 15

16 October 11, 2011 To Whom It May Concern: The William L. Adams Center for Writing is prepared to offer online students in the Department of Criminal Justice s M.S. in Criminal Justice and Criminology Program assistance with the papers they write during the course of their graduate studies. The center currently offers both face-to-face and online tutorials to students and faculty of all disciplines. Of the 7,200 tutorials the center provided during the academic year, 3,250 (or 45%) were online tutorials. A number of these tutorials involved fully online students in TCU s doctorate of nursing practice and master of liberal arts programs. The center s five full-time staff members respond to graduate students online submissions by reading each paper and offering instructional feedback via the comment function of Word. The center s writing consultants are not proofreaders or editors. They provide feedback on all aspects of writing, including structure, content, style, and sentence-level concerns. They tend to identify both strengths and weaknesses in a student s work. If they notice patterns of error, they will attempt to teach a student how to avoid the error and expect him or her to make any necessary corrections. They may do some editing in order to demonstrate ways students can revise particular passages. The aim of such editing is not to perfect the paper but to teach students longterm lessons about writing. The consultants read and comment on online submissions Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and usually return papers within one or two business days (depending on length and student traffic in the center). Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Dr. Steve Sherwood Director William L. Adams Center for Writing 16
