Creating and Teaching an Online Course

Target Audience
This workshop is for faculty who want to teach either a hybrid course (selected in-class sessions are replaced with online instruction and assignments) or a distance course (students take the course completely online).

All faculty, including adjunct faculty, are encouraged to apply. Attendees are limited to 16.

Prior to notification of acceptance we may contact you to clarify your needs. 
 
Topics
Faculty will receive pedagogical guidelines for developing online course materials. Topics include teaching and learning online, instructional design planning, building community, facilitating discussion forums, assessment strategies, copyright, evaluation, and TRACS tools required for building an online module.

NOTE: This is NOT a TRACS workshop. While the workshop will cover selected TRACS tools, the emphasis is on instructional design strategies and processes that will help you develop an effective course site that results in observable learning outcomes for your students.

This workshop is offered in a hybrid format. Three days are spent on campus in face-to-face sessions. Online assignments/sessions are completed throughout the workshop. The total time commitment is approximately 40 hours. We will be offering the workshop at three different times in 2013.
