DIY with a Guide, Session 2
The new DIY with a Guide program offers faculty a self-paced opportunity to design a course in collaboration with an instructional designer in the CTL. This program is reserved for those faculty who have already successfully completed Online in 9. It is structured to build on what you learned in Online in 9 to design a next-level, quality-assured online course with carefully integrated technologies and instructional strategies to achieve course goals. Though the program is self-paced, the cohort will meet 4 times over lunch to share ideas and get valuable feedback from peers. The program consists of 4 modules spread out over the semester: Designing, Building, Testing, and Reflecting. The central components of the program are built around Chickering and Ehrmann's framework, “Implementing the Seven Principles: Technology as Lever.” At the end of the semester, faculty participants will have a completely designed, quality-assured course ready to offer students.
