I'm very curious - what does your department look like? Especially in regards to the number of faculty and student population. Below I will outline my departments since I started in 2000.

My 1st job - Dean of Academic Tech & Fac Dev, me (Support Manager), 1 programmer, and 4 student workers.

= 7 employees to 200 faculty and 2500 students

My 2nd job - Me (Director of Distance Learning/Title III), Secretary.

= 2 employees to 30 faculty and 150 students

My 3rd job - Me (Director of Distance Learning Technologies) & eventually 2 work study students

= 3 employees to 60 faculty and 800 students

My 4th job - Me (Director for the Center of Teaching and Learning) - 

= 1 employee to 80 faculty and 2000 students

I'm not looking for anyone's CV pressure to go into lots of detail, but if you'd like to participate, give as much info as you'd like, and perhaps any interesting statistics surrounding the Online Learning/Distance Education/Faculty Training.

Hi  @lturner2 ‌

Like Kona, our structure is rather simple:

  • Department = eLearning,
  • Me = eLearning Coordinator,
  • 1 eLearning Support Specialist,
  • # faculty 208,
  • #students about 4,000 and some change

Like you, I wear several other hats, but unlike you I have just one title.

I hope this helps,
