2013 Online/Blended Summer Workshop Registration Open

The Learning Technology Center is pleased to announce the fourth annual summer faculty development opportunity on “Online/Blended Course Design and Best Practices.”  If you need to design a new (or refresh an older) online or blended/hybrid course, please consider participating in this unique opportunity to collaborate with other UW-Whitewater instructors and explore proven course design strategies and best practices.

This highly-interactive summer workshop demonstrates teaching best practices using a variety of teaching methods and technology tools, and topics are 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.”

The workshop consists of an online component conducted via Desire2Learn (D2L), face-to-face meetings, and webinars. The online portion begins on May 24 and ends July 30. There are also five, “in-person” face-to-face sessions scheduled for May 30, June 24-25, and July 29-30 as well as webinar-style meetings throughout the course. For more details, to register, and to listen to what participants have to say about what they learned from participating in last year’s workshop, please visit the Online/Blended Workshop Blog.

This workshop is sponsored by the by the UW-Whitewater College of Letters and Sciences, the LEARN Center, and the Learning Technology Center.  If you have questions or would like more information, please contact the Learning Technology Center (LTC) at ltc@uww.edu or call 262-472-1004.
