Facilitating Online Courses

Date/time: 
Thursday, August 24, 2017 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm
Location: 
215 Snell Library
Type: 
workshop
This in-person session is appropriate for faculty who have developed an online course but are new to online teaching, as well as experienced online instructors who want to enhance their practice. Using a model that focuses on presence and interaction in online courses, we will explore a range of topics, such as faculty social presence, facilitating discussions and student interaction, setting communication expectations, and managing workflow in an online class. We will both suggest and elicit strategies to help you facilitate your online courses in ways that are effective and efficient, and we will provide a template for planning course facilitation strategies.
