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:

  1. Planning online courses:
    • designing a learner-centered syllabus
    • organizing course content and layout
    • evaluating course effectiveness
  2. 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
  3. Establishing, communicating, and managing student expectations
  4. Identifying effective strategies to reduce faculty workload
  5. Monitoring and managing student performance
  6. Engaging students using:
    • effective communication
    • interaction (student/faculty, student/content & student/student)
    • collaboration
    • timely feedback
  7. Evaluating course effectiveness:
    • analyzing feedback
    • establishing quality assurance processes
    • revising and maintaining the course
  8. Understanding online teaching and learning dynamics (misconceptions, pitfalls, myths)
