Three-Day Course Redesign Essentials Workshop
This intensive workshop, modeled on the successful two-week Course Redesign Institute, will offer departments an accelerated, customized format that enables faculty to attend as cohorts. The session brings departments the essential tools, resources and peer community that faculty need to begin converting their face-to-face courses into hybrid, online or technology-enhanced versions.
What will be covered?
The workshop will cover a variety of topics related to course redesign, including:
- principles for quality online learning and teaching
- strategies and techniques for redesigning courses
- choosing learning technologies to employ in courses
- best practices for efficient facilitation
Topics not covered fully in the Essentials workshop (e.g., library resources, universal design, faculty development, technical aspects of certain tools) can be pursued in-depth via a specially designed Moodle resource site containing rich online multimedia materials.
Why should I attend this workshop, if the material is also available online?
Online is invaluable, but face-to-face remains the fastest and most effective way for faculty to make connections and receive personalized assistance from our support team. Once these connections have been made, they form a network of people and resources that will be available to help faculty through the workshop and beyond as they achieve their ongoing course redesign goals.
How do I sign up or get more information?
The three-day Essentials Workshop can accommodate a total of 20 faculty members. Interested faculty or department chairs should contact the Faculty Technology Center to discuss participation and find the best possible schedule for departments. The workshop can be delivered contiguously over three days or spread out over several days (e.g., three Fridays). All attendees are expected to be proficient with Moodle and/or take the necessary Moodle workshops beforehand to get up to speed before attending the Essentials workshop.
