Design: Planning an Online Course is a webinar ONLY – please do not come to the CTE office.
In this webinar, we'll cover how to Design your course to maximize student learning, with an emphasis on planning. We’ll discuss using Backward Design; aligning outcomes, assessments, and activities; and organizing your course into modules. We’ll also discuss factors you'll need to consider in planning, such as interactions (between students, faculty, and content) and Chickering and Gamson’s Seven Principles – which outlines the foundation for making your online course active, cooperative and relevant. And as a bonus for attending, we’ll through in some handy templates to help you get started!
