Event Details

While online education can be useful for increasing access to education and increasing flexibility in the system, the research on online learning is clear - we have to fill in the blank: access to what? What learners access must be of high quality, or it isn’t worth the time or money invested (theirs or ours). In this session, we will explore what creates a quality online learning experience so that student’s access to online opportunities adds value to their education. Participants will consider the following characteristics of effective online instruction: organization and structure; management of forums and discussions; effective multimedia content; feedback; and engagement. During the workshop, participants will develop a course plan (or revise an existing one) for an online or blended class; evaluate existing open content online using the principles from the workshop; discuss how to evaluate vendor products; and map instructional and engagement strategies and tools that help facilitate interactive online learning. Throughout the workshop, there will be discussions on managing the transition to online and debunking myths about online and blended learning. This workshop will be particularly appropriate for teachers who teach or will be teaching online and blended classes, as well as technology coordinators and others who support online teaching and select products and content for use in online and blended instruction.
