Grace College’s dean of online education, Tim Ziebarth, has been selected to present at the annual ACCESS (Association of Christian Distance Education) Conference this March. ACCESS embraces a wide community through Christian distance education, encouraging others to come together through the association to expand their reach as a vital part of Christian and theological distance education. Ziebarth’s contribution during the event will focus on the topic, “Does Online Quality Really Matter?”
Ziebarth was invited to present at the conference because of the strides the Department of Online Education has been making towards offering the highest quality of online education. Last March, Ziebarth and his team of collaborators achieved an astounding 100 percent on an online quality review of Grace’s Principles of Management online class. This occurred only two months after receiving a top-quality “5” rating (scoring 90 percent or more) on a quality review hosted through The Learning House, Grace’s online education solutions partner. Since those milestones, Grace’s online education system has continued to strategically design, develop, and implement quality online courses.
