Online Course Development Series - J-Term 2022: January 5–28
Learn how to strengthen your online and hybrid skills to enhance your course design and increase student engagement with the Online Course Development Series. This series prepares instructors to design, develop, and enhance online or hybrid courses using best practices of online teaching and learning.
The basic Online Course Development Series will guide participants through a systematic approach to the design and development of online synchronous, online asynchronous, and hybrid courses. Participants will be equipped to make design decisions that support interaction, student engagement, authentic learning and assessment, and meaningful integration of technology. This series will benefit instructors seeking to design or refresh an online or hybrid course.
The basic Online Course Development series will run January 5–28, 2022, in a facilitated online asynchronous format. All activities will occur through Blackboard Learn.
Within each module of the series, participants will put design principles into practice by developing different aspects of their course, receiving feedback from peers and instructional designers. By the end of the series, participants will have developed one complete week of an online or hybrid course and will use standards from the OSCQR rubric to conduct a self-review of the week developed.
Participants can expect to spend about three to five hours per module, including completing structured activities and individual work on course development (approximately 18–30 hours over six modules).
Please register for this series in the Workshop Registration System.
