Transforming a Traditional Personnel Preparation Program in Orientation and Mobility into an Online Program at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock
Abstract: The University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR) has offered a personnel preparation program in orientation and mobility (O&M) since 1975. Since that time, nearly 400 individuals from the United States and numerous foreign countries have either received degrees or have become eligible for national U.S. certification in O&M. However, it became increasingly apparent over the years that fewer individuals were willing to move to Little Rock for up to 13 months to receive their education and training. For many, this relocation for educational experiences meant leaving their families and even terminating their employment. Most had to make career changes to become O&M specialists.
