Designing Flexible Courses for Environmental Challenges – QM CONNECTLX Online Conference
October 28 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Courses today need a design to take learning and environmental challenges into consideration.
Few of us have had much experience with this which forced us into emergency remote teaching. Snow, floods earthquakes and pandemics have provided significant barriers to campus operations and learning. This session examines the importance of designing courses to have the flexibility of moving between classroom and online delivery to maintain safe, continued learning progress and a sense of normal. Participants will analyze and share best-practice strategies for developing courses that transfer from a face-to-face classroom to an online environment instantly. In addition, they will discuss their institution’s implemented best-practices to ensure significant learning can continue.
Participants will be able to reflect on the Cycle of Course Design model to improve teaching and significant learning by:
- Analyzing current course design practice to allow changing from F2F, blended and online quickly and effectively.
- Discussing the best practices they have implemented individually and steps their campus has taken to continue learning during environment challenges.
- Developing means for greater faculty “buy-in” as they examine ways to improve course design which delivers to safe and significant learning during challenges.
