Pre-conference Session: Forward-looking Teaching Design: The future is more of a mirror than a crystal ball, Quality Matters (QM) ConnectLX Online Conference
October 28 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Faculty and instructional designers realize the importance of delivering courses with a clear focus. However, many faculty have had little formal education in designing courses to deliver significant learning. In a time where the need for student success and retention through course and program completion is greater than ever, we examine how course design achieves this goal. Participants will use team-based learning and hands-on materials to plan for integrating course design. Deeper discussions of developing and aligning course outcomes, assessments and learning activities will take place as participants will analyze one of their own courses. Participants will share current practices to broaden their expertise as they consider how to develop course communication plans, accessible content materials, and learning technology integration.
Faculty and instructional designers worldwide have shared how valuable this process is in designing the kind of courses they have always wanted to teach as they see their students succeed. Through activities, participants will apply an extended integrated course design model using hands-on planning materials, align outcomes, assessments and learning activities, and analyze their own courses to deliver significant learning.
