Foundational Strategies for Effective Online Teaching
Workshop by Ana Redstone.
This six-week Web-based workshop introduces faculty to a number of strategies foundational to effective online teaching. Based on the assumption that online teaching dynamics require different competencies and facilitation skills from those required in face-to-face teaching, this session will guide participants through the steps of planning, organizing, and facilitating online courses. The workshop will focus on:
Planning online courses:
designing a learner-centered syllabus
organizing course content and layout
evaluating course effectiveness
Preparing the learning environment:
understanding students’ and instructors’ roles and responsibilities
getting to know the students
empowering students to successfully manage their online learning experience
creating an online learning community
Establishing, communicating, and managing student expectations
Identifying effective strategies to reduce faculty workload
Understanding online teaching and learning dynamics (misconceptions, pitfalls, myths)
