Lead Presenter: Sherri Restauri (Coastal Carolina University - Office of Online Learning)
Track: Lifelong Learning and Workforce Partnerships
Location: Zoom Room 1
Session Duration: 1hr 30min
Brief Abstract:

The modern learner is no longer the traditional, residential student. In fact, demographics and other recently published research tracking global trends suggests significant changes over the next 10-20 years in the educational arenas from K-20+. There is no longer a “traditional student”, but many campuses have yet to adjust to a changing norm. Many universities have already begun to see enrollments dip, some for the first time in many years. The face of education and of our students who seek education is changing, and we have to keep pace or lose out on opportunities to serve.

Current and upcoming trends relating to micro-credentialing and non-traditional educational pathways and models such as the 60 year curriculum are proliferating and building fast--let’s dive into each of these together to learn more, and to walk away from Innovate with some new ideas to implement in your own courses and programs, departments, colleges, campuses, and beyond.

There is a $150 fee to attend this pre-conference workshop. Registration will open soon.

A phonetics course is necessary for every language teacher-training program.

We report on how such a course is successfully designed and implemented entirely online using a unique collaborative approach.

UDL Design Hacks For Online Courses and Programs
Date: Monday, June 15th
Time: 11:30 AM to 1:15 PM
Conference Session: Concurrent Session 2 & 3 (combined)
Streamed session
Lead Presenter: Thomas Tobin (University of Wisconsin-Madison)
Track: Teaching and Learning Practice
Location: Zoom Room 3
Session Duration: 1hr 45min
Brief Abstract:

How many of your students come into your online learning environments fully prepared, having done all of the reading and eager to take an active part in the course? Yeah, mine never used to, either.

The reasons for this lack of student engagement and preparation can seem obvious: students' laziness, their lack of discipline, or their desire to do the minimum possible. But these reasoned hunches are just plain wrong.

In this workshop, you'll learn the real reason why learners aren’t as engaged as we'd like them to be (spoiler alert: it’s time management), and then you will learn, practice, and apply the principles of universal design for learning (UDL) with one of your own lessons or units. We’ll do this work together in order to lower barriers to fuller engagement, study, and participation for your students. This workshop is highly interactive. Please bring or have access to your lecture notes, a lesson plan, or a syllabus for one of your online courses or learning interactions, and we will address real challenges together through small teaching and design changes.

UDL is work that pays you (and all of your students) back many times over, so come spend some time breaking down barriers with the author of Reach Everyone, Teach Everyone: UDL in Higher Education.

Solving the Rural Educational Crisis

Streamed session
Lead Presenter: Kim Maier (Southwest Wisconsin Technical College)
Track: Lifelong Learning and Workforce Partnerships
Location: Zoom Room 1
Session Duration: 45min
Brief Abstract:

Our rural Southwest Wisconsin communities are facing three major crises.  First, our rural K-12 students do not have the opportunities many urban students are afforded.  Second, we have more jobs than we do people.  Third, as our citizens graduate from high school they leave our area for bigger and better opportunities.  To help solve the equity crisis, local K-12 leaders, business executives, and higher education administrators met multiples times over coffee, a blank piece of paper, and wild ideas.  Out of the meetings, came a dream to meet our rural K-12 with dual credit opportunities in their high schools with the use of alternative delivery.  The product called CollEDGE Up is a model that allows for students in grades 10-12 to complete up to one year of a two-year program while they are enrolled in high school.

Brief Abstract:

Join us for some quiet time to decompress, reconnect mind and body, and practice some self-care as we turn our focus inward for a short while.  Mindfulness has been defined as a practice of "bringing one's attention to the internal and external experiences occuring in the present moment" (Baer, 2003).  Join Clark Shah-Nelson for some guided mindful meditations.  These sessions will be geared toward centering ourselves on higher levels of consciousness so that we can experience OLC Innovate Virtual Conference in a healthy and present way together.

Brief Abstract:

Community college educators have always been at the forefront of design and implementation of unique programs for diverse populations. Online programs help us meet the demands of a fluid workforce and varied student demographics. We must be learning engineers in the truest sense as we provide structure and infrastructure to sustainable and adaptable programs. 

Step into our three part design challenge event, where you will join a team of learning engineers to build a digital program from the ground up. In a friendly competition, each team of engineers will seek to win the bid of our distinguished panel of judges with academic program building expertise. Our panelists will challenge teams to consider all the components of effective online, web-based, and blended programs. You’ll draw upon the knowledgebase of your peers and design-mates, incorporate the components of quality design and pillars of quality education, and engineer a program plan to take back to your organizations. Attendees need not be part of a community college in order to participate - all are welcome to participate.

The CC Summit option is included in your OLC Innovate Virtual Conference 2020 registration fee. There is no additional registration fee to participate in the summit.

Brief Abstract:

We propose a new theoretical model using Carol Rogers conditions for relationship. Using empathy, genuineness, and unconditional positive regard to facilitate meaningful life-changing dialogue in the online teaching environment where difficult dialogue regarding social justice issues involving race, class, gender, sexuality, ableism, and other non-hegemonic identities occurs.Yet, Tausch and Huls (2014) found that 60% of university students believed they received no empathy from their professors. Similarly, Rogers, Lyons, and Tausch (2014) found that student feelings or emotions are rarely addressed in the classroom.

Brief Abstract:

This session will address issues that faculty and learners struggle with in writing well-formed learning objectives. Learning Objectives are a key element in the Quality Matters rubric, forming the basis for determinations of alignment of learning elements. Yet in my experience as a faculty member and instructional designer few instructors have formal training in organizing a course, especially when it comes to stating the learning objectives of the course in observable and measurable terms. Learners also do not approach a learning task with clear objectives and aligned activities in mind. This workshop is designed to provide that training by introducing the parts of a learning objective, how learning objectives relate at different levels, and how learning objectives map out in cognitive and knowledge dimensions.

Digital leaders are guiding initiatives at traditional academic institutions and non-profits, developing new products and approaches within the private sector, and working to establish policies and regulations within government. We see ever increasing demand for cross-sector collaborations led by digital leaders across an increasingly diverse educational landscape. Join us at this three part event for featured presentations and small group discussions on opportunities for digital leaders, both established and emerging, in embedding digital strategy within the mission, goals and initiatives of entire institutions and organizations.

The Leadership Network Event option is included in your OLC Innovate Virtual Conference 2020 registration fee. There is no additional registration fee to participate in the event.

Digital leaders are guiding initiatives at traditional academic institutions and non-profits, developing new products and approaches within the private sector, and working to establish policies and regulations within government. We see ever increasing demand for cross-sector collaborations led by digital leaders across an increasingly diverse educational landscape. Join us at this three part event for featured presentations and small group discussions on opportunities for digital leaders, both established and emerging, in embedding digital strategy within the mission, goals and initiatives of entire institutions and organizations.

Lead Presenter: Terry Greene (Fleming College)
Track: Open Learning
Location: Zoom Room 2

Brief Abstract:

Educators from around the world have built (& continue to build!) a community patchwork of ‘chapters’ into a quasi-textbook about pedagogy for teaching & learning in higher education called the Open Faculty Patchbook. Each patch of the quilt/chapter of the book focuses on one pedagogical skill and is completed and published by different individual faculty members from any institution wanting to join in. The success of the project has lead to a follow up/companion piece known as The Open Learner Patchbook, which collects similar stories from a student perspective. The stories will continue to be collected for as long as they keep coming in! This session will describe the Patchbooks and participants will discuss and advise where the projects should go next.

In education, you often hear the phrase “Content is King”. Yet, during the course design process, the content can also become a major limitation when trying to develop innovative, high-quality learning experiences. In these circumstances, the development clock runs out while design teams wait for the prized content. When the content is received, there is often little time left to review and implement any revisions. While this is not always the case, this scenario happens more often than we prefer.

Location: Zoom Room 1
Session Duration: 45min
Brief Abstract:

Research forms the foundation of practice across the online learning landscape - but who does this research, how are topics and trends determined, and how does it impact theory and/or practice in the diverse range of higher education professionals that work in online education?  We often think of research as a formal investigation and publication process completed by faculty and/or dedicated researchers. While this empirical work is certainly one (very important!) way to define research, the study of online education is unique in that there are broad opportunities to contribute to knowledge and practice in the field (which is the very purpose of research).  Not only can research take various forms, many of us are engaged in some form of research without realizing it (and without realizing how we can use it to impact the field).

The Research Summit option is included in your OLC Innovate Virtual Conference 2020 registration fee. There is no additional registration fee to participate in the summit.

Track: Research: Designs, Methods, and Findings
Location: Zoom Room 1
Session Duration: 45min
Brief Abstract:

Research forms the foundation of practice across the online learning landscape - but who does this research, how are topics and trends determined, and how does it impact theory and/or practice in the diverse range of higher education professionals that work in online education?  We often think of research as a formal investigation and publication process completed by faculty and/or dedicated researchers. While this empirical work is certainly one (very important!) way to define research, the study of online education is unique in that there are broad opportunities to contribute to knowledge and practice in the field (which is the very purpose of research).  Not only can research take various forms, many of us are engaged in some form of research without realizing it (and without realizing how we can use it to impact the field).

Summer Data Science Online: Building Bridges through Collaboration in the Liberal Arts
Date: Thursday, June 25th
Time: 9:00 AM to 9:45 AM
Conference Session: Concurrent Session 1
Streamed session
Lead Presenter: Elizabeth Evans (Liberal Arts Collaborative for Digital Innovation (LACOL))
Co-presenters: Jennifer Spohrer (Bryn Mawr College), Jingchen (Monika) Hu (Vassar College)
Track: Teaching and Learning Practice
Location: Zoom Room 1
Session Duration: 45min
Brief Abstract:

A defining feature of a liberal arts education is learning through strong interpersonal collaborations among faculty and students; the emphasis is on connection, which can occur in person and online.  While some traditionalists at liberal arts institutions tend to assume face-to-face learning is best, a number of small colleges are actively experimenting with emerging forms of online engagement for our students and faculty through collaboration in the digital realm. 

In summer 2019, several leading liberal arts colleges in the Liberal Arts Collaborative for Digital Innovation (LACOL, https://lacol.net) collaborated to offer the first iteration of a fully online, team-taught course Introduction to Data Science for their undergraduates. The learning design was developed collaboratively by a multi-campus team of faculty, instructional designers and technologists, centered around these learning objectives: 1) familiarity and expertise in basic coding (R/RStudio); 2) understanding of theory and application of basic concepts in statistics; 3) ability to write and present technical material to diverse audiences.  Data Science is widely recognized as a subject of high interest and relevance across our schools, thus the opportunity to co-develop a truly useful online summer course experience for students presented itself.

Both synchronous and asynchronous pedagogies were used to deliver lessons, support group project work, and foster engagement between the teaching team and the roster of students drawn from five LACOL colleges. Student demand for seats in the class exceeded supply; retention after add/drop was 100%. Student performance and feedback indicate success in reaching many course and project goals, with room for growth in future offerings.

Our driving question remains: how can “liberal arts learning” best be achieved online? In this session, members of the LACOL Summer Data Science Class team will share an overview of the course design, implementation, and the lessons we learned in summer 2019.  We will also look ahead to the next iteration of the course to be offered in 2020, especially exploring the challenge of scaling up. In the second half of the session, prompts drawn from the book Small Teaching Online (F. Darby, J. M Lang, Jossey Bass 2019) will be shared to stimulate individual reflection. The group will then report out and discuss their favorite effective practices for liberal arts learning online.

Lead Presenter: Megan Tesene (Association of Public and Land-grant Universities)
Track: Teaching and Learning Practice
Location: Zoom Room 3
Position: 4
Session Duration: 1hr 45min
Brief Abstract:

Adaptive learning technologies have the potential to transform the learning experiences of students and faculty alike. Increasing applications of these technologies by faculty and institutions of higher education have helped to grow our collective understanding of how to support transformation through effective implementation. Effective adaptive courseware implementation can have a broad footprint at an institution, touching departments like institutional strategy, finance, IT, institutional research, student support, and academic units. Implementation and its associated institutional transformations can take time—anywhere from 9 months to 3 years—when accounting for the planning, preparation, and use of adaptive courseware. Ensuring that your institution has the necessary resources allocated to support this process, and alignment on a shared goal, are key to success.

Lead Presenter: Sherri Restauri (Coastal Carolina University - Office of Online Learning)
Track: Lifelong Learning and Workforce Partnerships
Location: Zoom Room 1
Session Duration: 1hr 30min
Brief Abstract:

The modern learner is no longer the traditional, residential student. In fact, demographics and other recently published research tracking global trends suggests significant changes over the next 10-20 years in the educational arenas from K-20+. There is no longer a “traditional student”, but many campuses have yet to adjust to a changing norm. Many universities have already begun to see enrollments dip, some for the first time in many years. The face of education and of our students who seek education is changing, and we have to keep pace or lose out on opportunities to serve.

Current and upcoming trends relating to micro-credentialing and non-traditional educational pathways and models such as the 60 year curriculum are proliferating and building fast--let’s dive into each of these together to learn more, and to walk away from Innovate with some new ideas to implement in your own courses and programs, departments, colleges, campuses, and beyond.

There is a $150 fee to attend this pre-conference workshop. Registration will open soon.

Brief Abstract:

A phonetics course is necessary for every language teacher-training program. We argue that phonetic training where students engage in real-life problems solving through peer-to-peer interaction is a valuable learning experience. We report on how such a course is successfully designed and implemented entirely online using a unique collaborative approach.

UDL Design Hacks For Online Courses and Programs
Date: Monday, June 15th
Time: 11:30 AM to 1:15 PM
Conference Session: Concurrent Session 2 & 3 (combined)
Streamed session
Lead Presenter: Thomas Tobin (University of Wisconsin-Madison)
Track: Teaching and Learning Practice
Location: Zoom Room 3
Session Duration: 1hr 45min
Brief Abstract:

How many of your students come into your online learning environments fully prepared, having done all of the reading and eager to take an active part in the course? Yeah, mine never used to, either.

The reasons for this lack of student engagement and preparation can seem obvious: students' laziness, their lack of discipline, or their desire to do the minimum possible. But these reasoned hunches are just plain wrong.

In this workshop, you'll learn the real reason why learners aren’t as engaged as we'd like them to be (spoiler alert: it’s time management), and then you will learn, practice, and apply the principles of universal design for learning (UDL) with one of your own lessons or units. We’ll do this work together in order to lower barriers to fuller engagement, study, and participation for your students. This workshop is highly interactive. Please bring or have access to your lecture notes, a lesson plan, or a syllabus for one of your online courses or learning interactions, and we will address real challenges together through small teaching and design changes.

UDL is work that pays you (and all of your students) back many times over, so come spend some time breaking down barriers with the author of Reach Everyone, Teach Everyone: UDL in Higher Education.

Solving the Rural Educational Crisis
Date: Monday, June 15th

Conference Session: Concurrent Session 5
Streamed session
Lead Presenter: Kim Maier (Southwest Wisconsin Technical College)
Track: Lifelong Learning and Workforce Partnerships
Location: Zoom Room 1
Session Duration: 45min
Brief Abstract:

Our rural Southwest Wisconsin communities are facing three major crises.  First, our rural K-12 students do not have the opportunities many urban students are afforded.  Second, we have more jobs than we do people.  Third, as our citizens graduate from high school they leave our area for bigger and better opportunities.  To help solve the equity crisis, local K-12 leaders, business executives, and higher education administrators met multiples times over coffee, a blank piece of paper, and wild ideas.  Out of the meetings, came a dream to meet our rural K-12 with dual credit opportunities in their high schools with the use of alternative delivery.  The product called CollEDGE Up is a model that allows for students in grades 10-12 to complete up to one year of a two-year program while they are enrolled in high school.
