Instructional Design: Creating Materials for an Online Course
Online — August 29 – October 3, 2008
What is the difference between preparing to teach an online course and preparing to teach in a face-to-face setting? A lot! Many who are new to online teaching are surprised at how much planning and writing is involved. This workshop orients participants to the ins and outs of online course design and authorship. This workshop is non-technical and software agnostic; we will not focus on the technical process of posting materials within a learning management system. Instead, we will concentrate on instructional design and materials preparation. By the end of the workshop, you will have developed (1) a sample syllabus and other orienting materials; (2) an online community-building warm-up activity; (3) the text for one online â€œsession,â€ including an activity/assignment; and (4) a strategy for assessing student learning.
