The Teaching & Learning Center will host a Summer Institute designed to assist faculty members in “tuning up” their online, hybrid, or web-enhanced courses. The two-day event (proposed for August 2016) offers interactive, hands-on sessions that guide participants in assessing, revising, and reinvigorating instructional components to make courses road-ready and to boost student performance.
The TLC is excited to bring Aaron Johnson, veteran course mechanic and author of Excellent Online Teaching: Effective Strategies for a Successful Semester, to campus for the Institute. He will deliver a number of sessions designed to spark ideas and power up your course design skills. Institute facilitators comprised of CSC faculty and TLC staff will assist in the tune-up, providing course checks, syllabus maintenance, and universal design overhauls. The Institute will also feature a virtual reality test drive (Google goggles included) to demonstrate virtual reality’s potential for engaging students through immersive environments.
Institute sessions will include morning sessions offering hands-on workshops and open afternoons allowing participants plenty of time to work on their courses and to meet one-on-one with TLC staff.
For more information about the Institute, read the full description on the TLC website: Tuning Up Your Online Courses.
The Institute is limited to 6 participants. Faculty interested in participating may register online (at http://csc.edu/tlc/workshops) or by sending an email to the Institute coordinator, Elizabeth Ledbetter (firstname.lastname@example.org), to reserve a seat.
Specific dates for sessions will be set once there is sufficient registration to hold the Institute.
