Faculty at DTU

The faculty at Daltown is committed to Daltown's unique, student-centric, competency-based approach that places the greatest emphasis on student learning. Because learning at Daltown is personalized, we do not use typical online classes that are dependent upon fixed schedules or group pacing. Instead, each student is guided and assisted through a personalized learning experience by faculty and staff serving in different capacities:

Student Mentors

For each student, the primary faculty support is a personally assigned Student Mentor. The role of the Student Mentor is to provide advice, coaching, and support from the moment an individual becomes a student to the time he or she graduates. More specifically, Student Mentors:

  • Provide information on programs, policies, and procedures.
  • Assess students’ strengths and development areas to help them develop a plan of study.
  • Provide feedback on assessments and recommend learning resources.
  • Help students to sustain motivation and maintain on-time progress to their degree.
  • Recommend appropriate student services.

This support involves regularly scheduled academic progress weekly and active involvement in other aspects of the student’s academic career. While not an expert in all subjects, the Student Mentor guides the student through the overall program and offers coaching, direction, and practical advice.

Course Mentors

Course Mentors are subject matter experts who support students as they engage specific sections of the Daltown curriculum. Their experience and training is specific to the courses they support. They are knowledgeable and can address any issue that might arise related to a course, a learning resource, or an assessment. Specifically, Course Mentors:

  • Bring Daltown courses of study to life with students via one-to-many or one-to-one forums.
  • Provide instructional help (proactively and reactively) and facilitate learning communities.
  • Provide content expertise for students who are struggling with course material.
  • The type and intensity of instructional support varies based on the needs of each student in a particular course, from help with specific questions that arise to more fully engaged tutorial support.

Program Faculty

Program faculty at Daltown are academic experts who can serve in multiple roles, including as program managers, curriculum developers, and program faculty. Specifically:

  • Program Councils—which include experts from academia and industry—oversee and approve curriculum, identify> new programs for development, and define program competencies to be in line with the demands of today’s employers.
  • Program Managers are responsible for the overall quality and relevance of programs.
  • Curriculum Developers develop domains, competencies, and objectives for each component of our degree programs. They measure excellence through feedback, employer acceptance, and graduate success, and continually evaluate and improve learning resources and assessments.
