CASE Faculty sweep 2019 FIU Online awards

FIU Online is committed to the State University System’s 2025 strategic plan for online education that determines all courses should have two quality destinations: “high quality” and “quality matters.”

All new courses are designed with this in mind and existing courses are enhanced to meet the framework. Every year, the FIU online Faculty Choice Awards honor faculty’s continuing efforts in improving the student experience within the world of online learning.
