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.
This blended synchronous-asynchronous course will have online sessions 2-3:30PM EST on select Mondays: January 25, February 1, February 8, February 15, March 1, and March 22, and March 29. Students should plan to spend approximately 4-6 hours per week on coursework, in addition to synchronous sessions on weeks when those occur.
This event is hosted by the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (CIRTL) and is designed for graduate students and faculty mentors.
