Designing Courses with a 20/20 Vision: Delivering Significant Learning Clearly – QM CONNECTLX Online Conference
October 23 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Faculty and instructional designers realize the importance of delivering courses with a clear, 20/20 focus. Many faculty have had little formal experience in designing courses to deliver significant learning. With the COVID-19 virus, the need for dual course delivery is essential. Even after the pandemic, other environmental challenges will force courses to change delivery modes quickly and effectively. Now the need student success, retention, and completion is greater than ever, we examine how course design achieves these goals. Participants use team-based learning to apply an integrated design to their own course. Designing framework and pedagogy, they align outcomes, assessments and activities, plan communication, integrate technology and analyze elements to deliver significant learning both in class and online. Facilitators will share faculty insights from the Accelerated Teaching Online Institute. The time to plan and design for tomorrow is today.
Participants will be able to use an integrated course design model to improve teaching and significant learning by:
- Planning for course situational factors and pedagogical challenges
- Aligning course outcomes, assessments and learning activities
- Designing courses for communication to students, accessible content materials and learning technology integration through hands-on planning materials
- Developing greater faculty “buy-in” as they participate in the application of design theory.
