Course Redesign Training
The Faculty Technology Center offers a number of workshops and specialized training sessions in course redesign to support faculty who want to design hybrid, online or technology-enhanced courses.
- Three-Hour Workshops: Course Redesign Essentials workshops are held throughout the semester. (Visit the Workshop Calendar for the current schedule).
- Full-Day Departmental Workshops : A longer, customized version of the Course Redesign Essentials workshop can be offered to departments for their faculty. For example, a full-day workshop is being developed for interested departments.
- Course Redesign Institute: The one- and two-week Summer Course Redesign Institute brings in cohorts of faculty from across campus to assist them in the redesign of their face-to-face courses for hybrid, online or technology-enhanced delivery.
- Consultations: Our staff of instructional designers and technologists are available for one-on-one consultations with faculty. To make an appointment contact email@example.com.
- Online Course Redesign Resources: The Course Redesign Essentials Moodle site contains materials used in our Hybrid/Online workshops and is especially helpful to faculty who want to learn on their own. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for access.
Quality Online Learning and Teaching (QOLT)
The Quality Online Learning and Teaching (QOLT) Rubric is designed to assist faculty in the design and delivery of online courses. It provides good practices and guidance for course redesign and the full instrument can help faculty evaluate the effectiveness of courses both during and after delivery. The QOLT principles are also useful for reviewing hybrid and face-to-face courses.
There are a number of software and hardware technologies that faculty can use to create technology-supported learning opportunities for their students. The Learning Technologies guide outlines many of the options available for using technology in course redesign. Many of these tools are available at no charge or at a reduced rate. Training workshops are held throughout the year on both the tools and techniques for applying good practices in course redesign.
