About the Workshop Series
The Curriculum and Instructional Design (CID) team is pleased to announce a series of workshops on topics related to online teaching and course development. The workshops aim to help meet one of the college’s highest priorities: student retention. The goal is to provide a space in which to learn, practice and discuss best practices for online teaching and course design.
The workshop series has two tracks. The Online Teaching Workshops are intended for adjunct instructors, but anyone can attend. The Course Development Workshops are targeted toward course developers and anyone curious about online course design. The workshops are based on current research, and you will practice the skills you learn with real-life examples and situations. Our hope is to provide you with practical materials, fresh ideas and constructive skills to use in your teaching and design practice. Workshops will be presented face-to-face and also as webinars to accommodate those at a distance, busy schedules, and learning preferences. (Webinars will be recorded for later viewing).
September 2014 Schedule
Our first workshop and webinar for both tracks is “A motivated student stays at school: Incorporating motivational strategies into online teaching”.
