Developing online courses
For many institutions, online courses are a strategy to provide options for students to complete academic requirements. In this course, we will examine four areas directly aligned with online teaching proficiency: readiness for teaching online, online course competencies, stages of adoption, and models of supporting faculty development. Participants will share institutional challenges and strategies that have been used to overcome these issues.
During this course, participants will:
- Analyze and select online teaching competencies that most closely meet institutional needs
- Understand the complexity of identifying online teaching readiness
- Determine needs among faculty at different levels of competence
- Articulate a plan for supporting faculty as they acquire competencies
- Select a model to support development of faculty skills
NOTE: Participants will be asked to complete assignments in between the course segments that support the learning objectives stated above and will receive feedback and constructive critique from course facilitators on how to improve and shape their work.
