Let's Help Gladys! Marriage Ed & the internet - 3/00

from: Smart Marriages
Gladys Mosby has attended the last two (1998 & 1999) Smart Marriages
conferences and she clearly knows a good thing when she sees it.
She works for the Army. She is practical. And looks
like she is one of those early adopters that Sherod Miller talked
about in his keynote at the very first Smart Marriages conference
Gladys is exploring the internet/techonology wave - and beckoning
us to come surf with her. Let's help her gather the state
of the art. CDs, internet, phone bridges, home study courses,
whatever. - diane

"Sould of a New University" is an especially interesting and timely
piece of information for me. I am one of the students that this article
is referring to in terms of utilizing modern technology to accomplish my
goal of achieving a Master's
degree. The classes are provided by top-notch professors who are
reaching the masses as opposed to the few. Considering people' s schedule
and new found fondness with technology, these classes are meeting the
of many, whereas the traditional educational system, in many cases,
regarding people's time and proximity is unyielding, inflexible and
oftentimes in many areas is unavailabe.
Also timely about this article is the fact that my thesis topic is
going to focus on the pros and cons of the delivery of psychoeducational
courses in this new age of technology. We offer these classes in
classroom/group settings, but how many do we actually reach? Why are our
numbers so low? What is it that prohibits one from enrolling in our
courses? What other options of delivery for our programs are available?
How can or are these classes such as a PAIRS, PREP, Family Wellness,
being offered or suitable for online presentation? What's lost,
for, and/or gained in this traditional style of delivery versus online
delivery? Is there anyone out there now doing this and or planning to do
so? Is there any research that has been done on offering these courses
this manner? How can the the results of delivery system be measured?
if not online course/program delivery will educators need to do in the
future to secure an audience?
These are a few of the questions that I need help from you and the
other professionals in this area to answer for me. I believe that by
giving you the opportunity to respond to these questions it will also help
me to truthfully and acurrately represent this research and the direction
which education in this area is moving. Thank-you and I will be glad to
share the final resulting information with all. My Email address is
rmosby at wnonline.net. Thanks to all in advance for your help!
