Institutional Committees

CSM Distance Education Advisory Committee (DEAC)

Mission


The immediate and long-term future of distance education and educational technology involves the merging and integration of many forms of teaching, learning, communication and adaptive, technologies. These technologies include onsite educational technology and distance learning tools and systems.

College of San Mateo’s Distance Education Advisory Committee advises and makes recommendations on policy and plans for the academic use of these technologies to a variety of governance and administrative entities, including the Institutional Planning Committee (IPC), the Committee on Instruction (COI), other college and district committees, and the Vice President of Instruction and the Dean of Academic Support and Learning Technologies. DEAC reports directly to IPC.

The CSM Distance Education Advisory Committee facilitates the development of distance learning instruction in response to student and community needs, and the latest developments and standards in educational technology. The committee is committed to supporting faculty and students in obtaining training in the use of appropriate technology for teaching and learning, both in the classroom and online. The committee evaluates current and emerging resources and educational technology used to instruct, support, and educate CSM Distance Education and on-campus students to determine what changes or improvements need to be made to meet the needs of our faculty and students, and makes recommendations based on these evaluations.

The phrase “educational technology” is often associated with, and encompasses, instructional theory and learning theory. Educational technology involves "the theory and practice of design, development, utilization, management, and evaluation of processes and resources for learning," according to the Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT). Educational technology includes, but is not limited to, software, hardware, learning management systems, and cloud-based applications such as wikis, e-portfolios, apps, and other online tools.

Please note that the committee was changed from the Distance Education and Educational Technology Committee (DEETC) to CSM Distance Education Advisory Committee (DEAC) in April 2019. The change was made to better align the committee name to District DEAC and our sister colleges.

The goals of the committee are to:
  1. Integrate distance education into CSM’s institutional planning processes and cycles. 

  2. Communicate current and accurate information to the college community about the courses and services available to distance learners. 

  3. Recommend student services, learning resources, and instructional support for distance learners, which are equivalent to those available for students enrolled in face-to-face mode courses. 

  4. Provide effective institutional support for distance education training and learning to faculty, staff, administrators, and instructional and student services support staff.

  5. Increase synergy between District Distance Education Advisory Committee and College DE teams to provide district-wide infrastructure, resources, and support for online learning.

  6. Promote dialogue around rates of student success, completion, and satisfaction between distance education and on-campus courses.
