FLYER-Best Practices for Implementing Online Course Model-Oct 22 2014

The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning presents Best Practices for Implementing an Online Course Development Model from 1:30-3 p.m. Oct. 22 in Media 238.

Guest speaker will be Dr. Veronica Outlaw, director of distance learning at USC Aiken.

Creating an online course goes beyond the mere creation of the course. Following a comprehensive course development model will help ensure that the consideration of the faculty’s teaching philosophies and skills, student’s learning styles, facilitation practices, and department/institution’s distance learning missions and goals are addressed. Join us for an explanation of what is involved in the six step process in an online course development and review process.

Learn how faculty and an instructional designer can create a course that is robust, interactive, engaging and nearly self-sufficient.

Outcomes: Upon completion of this workshop, faculty will be able to:

  • Recognize best practices, quality assurance rubric, and examples of usability data used in building online course templates (learning management system shell, syllabus, schedule, and welcome email) and online course facilitation.
  • Describe course, department, and institution requirements to consider when building online courses.
  • Evaluate the Course Development Model (Six Phases).
  • Discuss the importance of a quality course review.
