Hey y'all I see that some of you attend COPs that use distance learning and I am wonder about your opinion of the education you receive this way, the pros and cons, complaints, etc. My school (U of South Carolina) is considering a merger with MUSC in which some of the classes will be taught with distance learning (among other changes I don't like). I am very opposed to this change although it will not affect me, it will affect the classes below me and my school in that some day there won't be a USC-COP. I'm also concerned about the quality of education and whether or not this is a direction we want pharmacy as a profession to go. Secondly, I plan to write some letters and petitions on behalf of current students and alumni as most of us are opposed to this change. Does anyone have experience with this? Who do I write to? The state legislators? The Board of Trustees? It is out of the hands of our school's deans already. any input or help would be much appreciated!
