SACS Effect.jpg
Online Teaching
The topic for this session was SACS standards/restrictions/prescriptions and online instruction at
Trevecca. Conversations around campus indicated that there were various levels of confusion among
faculty and administrators about how SACS imposes on TNU’s online course design and online
delivery of instruction. These conversations about how to “do” online education often come to an end
when someone invokes the “SACS requirement or prohibition argument.” Dr. Pusey helped clarify
SACS’ standards affecting Trevecca’s online delivery of instruction, allowing us to continue our
conversations about best practice for Trevecca’s online programs.
