Course (Re)Design - Online Edition

online course redesignLooking for a way to dive deeper into your online teaching? Join us for the Course (Re)Design - Online edition May 15 - 29 to have the opportunity to work with a community of instructional faculty and staff to improve your online or hybrid course. The conceptual framework for this online course and workshops are based on the book -  "Meaningful Online Learning." Instructors will work through an in-depth process of creating a course that will provide significant learning experiences for their students.

Scheduled for May 15 - May 29

The Center for Academic Excellence (CAE) invites current full-time teaching faculty and staff to apply to participate in a Course (Re)Design Institute for Online courses (CRDI-O). The CRDI-O is designed to expand participants' knowledge and skill in designing quality courses. This program is created for the faculty member who has been teaching online for a semester or more, and wants help to revamp their course materials and dive deeper into more advanced approaches to online learning.

During the Institute, participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn how to apply research-based teaching and learning principles to course design;
  • Design or redesign a course built on learner-centered design principles; and
  • Develop a final or near-final syllabus by the May 29 date.

Course delivery will be completely online, and will be a combination of asynchronous course work via AsULearn, and some synchronous meetings via Zoom. Additional consults, as needed, will be available throughout the summer. The redesigned course and accompanying syllabus will be reviewed up through Fall 2019. Follow-up meetings during the Fall 2019 semester will also be available.

To apply for consideration, please complete the application by March 23, 2019. Applicants will be notified of acceptance by March 30, 2019.
