Are you scheduled to teach an online or blended course? If so, the Online and Blended Teaching Program can help! The Online and Blended Teaching Program is a multi-day program that focuses on helping instructors redesign their courses for the online or blended format using pedagogically-effective methods and practices.
Participants should plan to attend three face-to-face meetings on the following dates:
- February 26, 9a-12p
- March 11, 9a-12p
- April 1, 9a-12p
During each session, program facilitators will lead discussions and activities focused on key pedagogical considerations for online and blended instruction. Topics discussed over the course of the program include:
- Using backward design for learning module creation
- Delivering digital content
- Developing effective online assignments and activities
- Assessing student assignments
- Managing instructor workload
- Supporting students
- Building presence and community
- Evaluating courses
Participants should also plan to engage in online activities between the face-to-face sessions that will aid in building a piece of their future course. These activities will require 2-3 hours per week and will include:
- Viewing presentations and reading articles
- Taking a quiz on content, activities, and assessment
- Participating in asynchronous discussion forums
- Developing a usable learning module for a redesigned course
By registering for this event, you are registering for all three dates (2/26, 3/11, and 4/1), even though the e-mail confirmation will only have the first date (due to registration system limitations).
Our program is activity-based, so please bring a laptop or tablet to all three sessions, if possible. For more information, or to request special accommodations, please contact Dylan Barth at 414-229-4319.
