Online Teaching Working Group
Meeting Weekly via Asynchronous Online Portals
Working Group Work Day – Saturday, May 2 (Cremona 102) – 9am to 3pm
ETM is offering an Online Teaching Working Group during the Spring 2015 quarter for instructors slated to teach an online course in the Summer quarter (or considering an online course for Fall 2015). In an effort to model the experience for best effect and efficacy, the online element of the working group will mirror the experience of an online student by taking place entirely online. There will be 10 weekly modules, each focused on a facet of online learning (the importance of an online orientation, course organization, developing an effective module/lesson/course objective, the importance of teacher presence, opportunities for group work, and opportunities for communication).
The work day is an extension of the Work Group, providing time and physical space for faculty to work with ETM staff to create and / or consolidate Blackboard course shells, course materials, course organization, assessment mechanisms, online learning building blocks, and so forth. Open to full-time faculty and full-time staff (who teach as part of an overage) slated to teach an online course during the Summer 2015 quarter or considering a course for Fall 2015. Participants in the working group will receive a $250 honorarium.
