Covid-19 Pandemic - Catalyst for A New Class of Faculty
Institutions of Higher Education have refocused their instructional methods toward online or remote options. This is a result of environmental changes due to the Covid-19 virus and advances in technology. In the United States, this necessitated system of delivery calls for a modernized class of faculty. The traditional structure of faculty does not include a rank dedicated to online only instruction. A faculty rank of Online Professor seems to be warranted. This paper explores the effects of the Covid-19 Pandemic on higher education. Followed by a review of the types of instruction offered, the faculty structure, a call for an additional online education-based faculty rank, to include logistics, and recommendations.
