HPAA Online Instruction
Project Charter
Version: 02-04-02

Overview
The Health Policy and Administration (HPAA) Department is pursuing several online initiatives in conjunction with the Department’s goals. Instructional and Information Systems (IIS) will provide support for each of these activities to facilitate effective instructional design and ensure quality technical implementation. Projects range from redesigning existing Blackboard implementations to creating custom instructional materials to facilitating the creation of a full certificate program. Todd Nicolet has been assigned by IIS to coordinate each of these activities.

Scope
The HPAA Online Instruction Project is composed of 8 subprojects. The following provides a brief description of the context of each subproject and the activities required to complete it.  

PUBH 125 – Terrorism and Community Preparedness

Key Stakeholder:

 ---------------

Description:

A one-credit seminar that involves weekly presentations from experts in the fields of terrorism. The course includes a Blackboard space where presentations will be posted as webcasts along with supplementary materials. Presentations may also be used as separate learning objects in other contexts.

Activities:

Provide support for Blackboard space and maintenance. For each presentation, record the full session, encode as a webcast, and make available through the Blackboard space. Investigate other possibilities for presentations and implement as appropriate.

 

Certificate Program – Management of Community and Public Health Disasters

Key Stakeholder:

---------------

Description:

A new certificate program is being created that will provide a 4-course curriculum in dealing with public health disasters. The first course will begin on May 31, 2002, and students will be able to complete the certificate in one year. Courses will be taught online with participants meeting at the start and end of each course. Course development and teaching will be shared by multiple instructors, each being responsible for a module. Each module and various submodules should be able to stand on its own or be moved into different courses.

Activities:

Develop and refine a standard knowledge module template. Facilitate completion of modules with individual instructors. Help ensure that modules retain independent use but also work together to create a cohesive course and program. Provide additional technical development as required.

 

HPAA 233 – Management of Organization Change

Key Stakeholder:

---------------

Description:

The current face-to-face course needs to be developed into an online course that can be taught through Blackboard.

Activities:

Work directly with instructor to design online course and develop Web-ready materials. Develop Blackboard course site and provide instructional technology support to prepare instructor to teach the course.

 

HPAA 275 – Analytic Techniques in Health Policy and Administration

Key Stakeholder:

---------------

Description:

The course needs multimedia presentations that function as core concept clips. These clips should follow the model established for HPAA 270.

Activities:

Coordinate the creation of core concept clips, following the guidelines and standards already in place.

 

HPAA 270 – Health Economics for Policy and Administration

Key Stakeholder:

---------------

Description:

The course needs multimedia presentations that function as core concept clips. Three have already been completed, and additional clips are needed.

Activities:

Coordinate the creation of core concept clips, following the guidelines and standards already in place.

 

HPAA 155 – Introduction to Management Information Systems in Healthcare

Key Stakeholder:

---------------

Description:

The course needs to incorporate more online learning strategies.

Activities:

Work directly with instructor to facilitate course design and to investigate and implement additional technical solutions.

 

HPAA 180 – Health Law

Key Stakeholder:

---------------

Description:

The course needs a simulation integrated into the course.

Activities:

Work with instructor to develop and implement simulation.

 

HPAA 144 – Statistical Methods for Health Policy Administration

Key Stakeholder:

---------------

Description:

The course is taught nationally (Web-based), residentially (face-to-face), and through North Carolina (televideo). On-demand webcasts are needed to allow the instructor to teach all of the sections from a distance, since he will be based in Arizona.

Activities:

Develop, record, and post webcasts to support instructional requirements and goals for the course.

 

Timeline
Timelines are still being established for most subprojects. PUBH 125 presentations began on January 14, 2002, so support has already begun. The Certificate Program begins on May 31, 2002, and must have at least one course complete by then. A second course should be complete by June 30, 2002. Most subprojects should be fully complete by June 30, 2002. The timeline will be edited to include more detailed start and end dates on subprojects as soon as this information has been gathered.
