Distance Education at KU is a critical component to our mission to lead this university into the future. It enables new learning, creates new partnerships, and sparks connections to our passionate Kutztown University alumni. Whether a course is fully online or online activities are used to supplement face-to-face classes, the digital environment can promote engagement and learning opportunities.
The Distance Education office consists of a team of instructional designers and learning technology experts, who collaborate with faculty to ensure that the all modes of teaching are supported. Our mission is to provide all faculty, staff, and students with an enriched educational experience through innovations in course design and pedagogy, the application of learning technologies, and targeted professional development opportunities.
What we believe
At the Office of Distance Education, diversity, equity, and inclusion are more than just words for us. They’re the hard-and-fast principles that guide who we are and how we serve the university community. Our commitment to these values is unwavering as we learn, grow, and evolve. We know that having varied perspectives helps generate better ideas to solve the complex problems of a changing—and increasingly diverse— education community. We want to reflect that commitment online, in the classroom, and inside our office.
