Nuts & Bolts: Building 400 Health Science E-Modules Using the E-Learning Scorecard
Concurrent Session 5
Learn about the nuts and bolts process of creating the UNMC E-Learning Scorecard resulting from the building of over 400 online curriculum modules by health sciences faculty and students. Explore the study results of the scorecard's usability and inter-rater reliability with both novice and expert faculty users.
Discover the tool for building quality e-learning modules. Building a house takes many experts – carpenters, electricians, plumbers, just to name a few. Hear from the expert educational builders - faculty, librarian, instructional designer, and researchers - who built the UNMC Interactive E-Learning Scorecard and tested its reliability and validity.
Using the E-Learning Scorecard ensures quality construction of online modules, and helps maintain a positive perception of the value of online learning. Quality materials and processes ensure learners receive the most benefit from the e-learning content.
In this session participants will learn about the nuts and bolts process of constructing and using the e-learning scorecard tool:
- Distinguish the components of an e-learning module and how over 400 modules have been created.
- Learn the best practices included in the UNMC E-Learning Scorecard
- Discover how expert and novice faculty rate the tool’s usability and reliability
- Discuss how the transferability of the e-learning scorecard
The University of Nebraska Medical Center has embraced interactive e-learning modules since 2013 with over 400 e-modules created by faculty and students. The implementation of e-modules is transforming teaching through blended learning – assigned as pre-work, replacing lectures, or supplementing the curriculum allows for utilizing class for active learning and improved student evaluations.
Panel discussion (15 mins) Hear from the expert educational builders - faculty, library, instructional design, and researchers - who built the foundation, created, revised, and studied the UNMC Interactive E-Learning Scorecard.
Plenary discussion (20 mins) The panel will use PollEverywhere and small group facilitation to answer participant questions and discuss what how what can be gained by e-learning developers or institutions who implement the tool, or address concerns participants have about the tool and implementation
Panel wrap-up (10 mins) In this session, the panelist will "wrap-up" the plenary discussion with the next steps for publication and sharing the tool with other institutions, faculty, and e-learning developers.
Participants may access the UNMC E-Learning Scorecard and E-Gallery during the session.
