Discussion Thread #2: Implementation of the e-learning Strategy

Goal #1 in the Fleming College e-learning Strategy is to “design and develop e-learning experiences for all students in each semester of every Fleming College program.” This will happen as part of the “annual curriculum renewal process by program faculty teams.” Do you think we need to develop an implementation strategy that will guide the design and development process in each specific discipline/program in our school, or do you think we need a common school-wide implementation strategy?
