Public two-year higher education institutions in the United Sates are offering electronic-technology based distance education courses at a rapidly accelerating pace in response to multiple external and internal forces. Faculty competency in the use of electronic-technology based technologies and media appropriate teaching-learning methods is essential for the current and future success of distance education. This study examined the beliefs of deans, department heads, and distance education faculty members regarding what types of professional development education activities and support-related elements should be provided by public two-year higher education institutions that are offering electronic technology-based distance education.
