Online learning is proving to be equal if not superior to the traditional classroom setting when measured in terms of faculty perception, student satisfaction, and evidence-based achievement of desired learning outcomes. In this webinar led by Brenda Watkins and Celeste Fenton of Hillsborough Community College, you will “pack your backpack” with practical strategies to improve student motivation and engagement in your distance learning courses. Administrators of online courses and programs will discover ways to measure effectiveness to determine alignment with program goals and comparability to program courses delivered via other modes as well as professional development models that facilitate stellar online teaching. This session will serve as an introduction or refresher for instructors new to teaching online, or as a means to encourage fresh thinking for experienced online faculty or administrators charged with evaluating online course/program rigor and effectiveness.
Topics to be “packed” are:
• The AAA of course design: aligning assignments and assessments with objectives
• Online course engagement
• Time-saving strategies
• Measuring effectiveness
• Professional Development for Online Instruction
