Course Design/Hybrid Course Design Workshop

General Course Design–January 14th, 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
Hybrid Course Design–January 14th, 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.

General Course Design Workshop: Are you rethinking a course you’ll be teaching this next year? Or, are you planning a new course soon? Or, are you interested in finding more efficient ways to think about student assignments? Then join this discussion on ways to think about course design to be more efficient and effective in accomplishing the goals for your courses. During the session participants will 1) set expectations for student learning, 2) plan assignments and class activities that help students achieve the goals for their learning, and 3) design assessments (exams, projects, papers) that measure students’ achievement of course goals. Participants should bring a course syllabus or ideas for new courses to the session. Lunch will be provided. During lunch participants will hear from a panel of faculty about their experiences using these principles to design hybrid courses. Lunch will be provided.

Hybrid Course Design Workshop: Collaboratively presented by DoIT and the FDC, this workshop starts with the General Course Design Workshop in the morning (see description above). In the afternoon, participants will learn about resources available through the Online Learning Consortium  (OLC; formerly Sloan Consortium), apply the principles of quality course design through the introduction of the Quality Matters rubric in planning a hybrid course, and gain hands-on experience with some of the communication tools and engagement strategies that are effective in online teaching. This workshop is open to all full or part time UMBC faculty and is a requirement for Alternate Delivery Program (ADP) participants. Lunch will be provided.
