Online in 9

Take your online course to the next level by participating in a 9-week series designed to help you efficiently develop or redesign your course.  By the end of the series, you will have a completely finished course site, confidence with new technologies and strategies for managing your time and students. This series is designed to fit into your schedule with a combination of face-to-face and online activities structured to keep your course development on track. Join your colleagues in an interdisciplinary small group to share ideas and learn new tools and strategies guided by research-based, national standards.



DIY with a Guide

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.

Intercampus Course Sharing

The Intercampus Course Sharing Initiative from University of Missouri-System allows faculty from any of the UM campuses to teach an online course that can be taken by students at other UM campuses. Faculty or departments interested in the Course Sharing process will need to complete a proposal for the course(s) they intend to share to other campuses. Stipends are available for applicable development and coordination costs associated with building the course and/or transitioning it online.
