The Learning Technology Center is pleased to announce the fourth annual summer faculty development opportunity on how to “Navigate Content and Teach Online and Blended Courses.” If you need to design a new or refresh an older online or blended course, consider participating in this unique opportunity to collaborate with other UW-Whitewater instructors and explore proven course design strategies and best practices.
This unique summer workshop demonstrates teaching best practices using a variety of teaching methods and technology tools presented in an experiential learning model format. The structure of this course not only allows you to explore new teaching and course design methods, but it also enables you to participate in activities that provide you with experience in being an online “student.” During the course, you will learn about a variety of technologies and teaching techniques to support online instruction as well as gain a better understanding of the Quality Matters Program.
The workshop consists of an online component conducted via Desire2Learn (D2L), face-to-face meetings, and webinars. The online portion starts May 21 and ends July 31. There are also five, “in-person” face-to-face sessions scheduled for May 31, June 25-26, and July 30-31 as well as three webinars scheduled for June 4, June 18, and July 16. For more details, to register, and to listen to what last year’s participants learned from participating, visit the Online/Blended Workshop Blog.
