The UW-Whitewater Learning Technology Center (LTC) is pleased to announce that applications are now open for a Winterim 2023 Online and Blended Teaching Institute in a condensed hybrid format. The overall goal of the institute is to align quality course design with best practices in blended teaching, preparing faculty for online course development, and teaching in future academic terms. The course models a blended course including readings, materials, and short homework assignments. Participants will be required to build an online unit of a course they could teach.
This institute is intended for people designing a course for Summer or Fall 2023 or for those teaching in Spring 2023. It would also be appropriate for instructors designing a new course.
There are six 90-minutes workshops that are part of this Institute. These will include a student panel discussion and a peer-to-peer review session to share ideas and collaborate on online course designs in progress. Final course materials will be due January 30th.
