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.

This workshop will take place in a virtual synchronous session using Collaborate Ultra. Prior to the workshop, attendees will receive an email with a link to participate online. Participants should join the session 10-15 minutes prior to the start of the workshop to work out any potential connection issues.

Participants should plan to attend two synchronous virtual sessions on the following dates:

  • June 12, 9am-12pm
  • June 26, 9am-12pm

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 virtual 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

By registering for this event, you are registering for both dates (6/12 and 6/26), even though the e-mail confirmation will only have the first date (due to registration system limitations).
