The Higher Education Community Network
Abstract: About two years ago, the Higher Education Advisory Council, chaired by the Education Division’s past chair, John Dew, conceptualized the idea of a higher education network in which the college faculty could share course material including a course syllabus or case studies related to courses in quality. The idea of a shared open courseware network grew out of MIT’s concept of its OpenCourseWare effort. In the case of ASQ’s Higher Education Community Network (HECN), the hope was that faculty who teach courses on quality, in engineering, business, statistics or other credit courses, would contribute to the network so that sharing of the design of courses would occur. The HECN is open only to ASQ members.
