Join the NSF INCLUDES Aspire Alliance's National Change Team for our short course: Teaching Online in Fall 2020: How to design and run an effective and equitable online course.
This short course will walk instructors through the process of designing an online course that is effective, equitable and inclusive. It will focus on designing content and choosing pedagogy for both synchronous and asynchronous formats, and will engage participants through both types of sessions. The course will address the basics of online and inclusive pedagogy. Over the three weeks, participants will design their own online course materials.
Synchronous sessions will be held: 1:00-2:30 pm PT / 2:00-3:30 pm MT / 3:00-4:30 pm CT / 4:00-5:30 pm ET (United States time zones) on the following dates:
Session #1 - Tuesday, July 21st
Session #2 - Thursday, July 23rd
Sessions #3 & 4 - ASYNCHRONOUS - week of July 27th
Session #5 - Tuesday, August 4th
Session #6 - Thursday, August 6th
As a result of participating in this short course, participants will be able to:
- Describe key principles of effective online pedagogy;
- Apply the process of backward design to both synchronous and asynchronous online teaching and learning environments;
- Experience strategies and approaches for promoting inclusion and equity in the online setting;
- Navigate online tools such as asynchronous course management systems (e.g., Moodle) as well as synchronous meeting tools (e.g., Blackboard Collaborate Ultra); and
- Create their own materials for an upcoming online course.
