Recurring Event Event Series: Basics of Online Learning and Teaching

Basics of Online Learning and Teaching

March 29, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm CST

This online blended 10-week course walks students through online course development in a mix of synchronous and asynchronous activities. The course will begin with 4 weeks of synchronous online sessions providing an overview of the course and effective online pedagogy. This will be followed by a mix of synchronous and asynchronous sessions on building a course. Each week will involve approximately 4-6 hours of readings, videos, assignments, discussions, and peer feedback. During this time students will work on their final projects where they will develop materials for an online course (or unit) they plan to teach in the future. The course will end with 1 week of student micro-teaching presentations to the group.
