Distance Education Committee

Welcome to MVC's Distance Education Committee (DEC). As a subcommittee of Curriculum Committee, the DEC advises the Curriculum Committee and Academic Senate on all matters related to distance education, and coordinates and provides distance education training for faculty and staff.

 

Mission

With regard to distance education, our mission is to promote sound course design, professional development, DE student support, and delivery of credit courses to meet the educational needs of our students in proactive and accommodative ways. We also seek to ensure that distance education faculty are well-prepared to confidently develop and deliver high-quality, stimulating, and academically rich courses, providing students a challenging and edifying educational experience.
