The Office of Teaching and Learning (OTL) has teamed up with Learning and Applied Innovation (LAI) to bring you a new workshop series about teaching your class online. This series will start with the very beginning – establishing your course as an online offering. From there, LAI instructional designers will provide information specific to the pedagogical needs of online instruction. The next workshop will focus on identifying best practices for teaching online. The final workshop will address tools you can use to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of your course.
Throughout the entire workshop series faculty and teaching staff are invited to ask questions related to their course.
Sessions will be held as follows:
September 9 & 10 - Getting Started
Designed to address your immediate questions, to answer some of the common questions you will likely face along the way, and to help you create successful online learning experience. Participants will be encouraged to use existing syllabi, lesson plans and assignments as working examples.
October 7 & 8 - Ten Best Practices in Online Instruction
We will cover various aspects of the student/faculty experience and provide guidance for facilitating communication, engagement and assessment in an online learning environment. Faculty will be encouraged to share questions, concerns and experiences and will be left with a collection of resources to help them make the move to online instruction.
November 4 & 5 - Tools of the Trade
Offers an opportunity for guided exploration of the technologies that can help enable effective online teaching and learning. Bring your ideas and ideals, your priorities and your goals and see how they may translate to a different mode of teaching.
This workshop series is FREE and open to all NDSU instructors who are interested in teaching their class in an online format.
