            HIGH:
            A1) Consider drafting an advisory/consultative report, jointly with IRC, requesting that World Campus prepare a formal presentation to faculty (particularly at campuses with declining enrollments) explaining how programs can take advantage of the opportunity afforded by teaching online. Targeted presentations might include: different online course options including World Campus, local online courses, and consortium courses, and an explanation of the different revenue models for online courses. [This report is primarily an Outreach report.]A2) Consider drafting an informational or advisory/ consultative report on how World Campus projected growth will alter the educational marketplace for the Commonwealth Campuses. Highlight both the opportunities and challenges created by the potential shift from residential instruction to online instruction. If appropriate, make recommendations to balance online and residential instruction. Potentially work in consultation with UE, IRC, and possibly FA.OTHER:
            B1) Consider drafting an advisory/consultative report recommending that World Campus develop a resource database for full-time faculty who might be interested in teaching courses online, beyond their normal contract. The database would be a resource to help staff online courses with the most qualified faculty from within the Penn State system.MANDATED REPORTS:None
