Faculty are on the frontline in the development of fully online and blended learning materials. And while they are often willing and enthusiastic teachers, the design and development of online courses is a complex process involving theoretical and technical knowledge that can be new. Faculty development typically takes the form of workshops, instructional design resources, and technical assistance. In this study faculty involved with online development were interviewed at three key stages in the process. Preliminary findings suggest that different forms and emphases for support may be needed as a project progresses. In this session, faculty experiences in each stage of online course development are reviewed. Session participants will be invited to brainstorm the implications of the findings on current methods of providing faculty support for online contexts.
