Location

Hull Auditorium

Start Date

14-2-2014 12:00 AM

Description

Objective. The goal of this study was to use iPad technology to collect real-time data in order to estimate and compare how faculty time was spent two Doctor of Physical Therapy programs -- one delivered via a traditional face-to-face format, the other via a hybrid forming involving the use of online technology in addition to face-to-face interactions. Background. There is little information about how faculty members in physical therapist education programs allocate their time among teaching, scholarship, service, and administration. We studied faculty in two types of entry-level DPT Programs offered at the same private university. One program is a Traditional Program, delivered primarily through on-campus face-to-face interaction. The other is a Hybrid Program, where students come to campus once a month for four days of full-time face-to-face interaction; otherwise, content is delivered through a variety of online tools and technology. Methods. An observational work sampling method was used to collect data. A taxonomy of work as a faculty member in a DPT program was created and used to design a framework of categories for data collection. Major task categories were teaching, research, service, administration, and other. Under each major task category, codes for relevant activities were created; e.g., course development
