Kickstart Week (Day 1): Course Design, Quality, and Learning Objectives

Tue, 12/17/2019 | 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM | Pomerene Hall  280


Kickstart Week is a series of related in-person workshops that will prepare you to design for and teach in online and hybrid settings. Each day focuses on a different set of skills and pedagogies.

This day's workshop will emphasize the following:

  1. Course design process: This session will guide you through a backward design process that helps articulate course goals and objectives and identify appropriate learning methods for achieving them. We will focus on differences between traditional course design and what is required for online course delivery.
  2. Online Quality Assurance: This session will review some of the elements of course design and delivery that become especially salient in the transition to online, describe some of the major initiatives to predict a course's effectiveness through standard review, and demonstrate the process of reviewing an online course.

Major Topics: Course Design, Quality, and Learning Objectives

Day One of Kickstart Week will focus on designing your course to best take advantage of online affordances while avoiding pitfalls. The process begins by articulating clear, measurable learning goals and objectives, which the session facilitators will help you do through interactive workshopping. ODEE's Course Quality Coordinator will describe the leading national initiatives for assessing online course quality and demonstrate how you can leverage their rubrics to gauge the effectiveness of your own and peers' courses.

Following each segment, you will have the opportunity to practice what you learned with guidance from experts. By the end of the day, you will have drafted and received feedback on core elements of your online course design.

Attendees are encouraged to register for and attend all four days: Day One - Day Two - Day Three - Day Four. The series has been designed to provide an integrative introduction to a complete process of online course design.
