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:

  • March 10, 9a-12p
  • March 31, 9a-12p
  • April 14, 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 (3/10, 3/31, and 4/14), 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.
