Help I’m Overwhelmed with Courses! How do I keep courses up to date?
Concurrent Session 7
How do you keep up with course quality and revisions after the initial development? Learn how a team of instructional designers developed and implemented an asynchronous Redesign Cohort to assist and educate instructors on how to redesign their course so that students continue to get a high quality learning environment.
From the beginning, UA Online has built in quality assurance initiatives to the course development cycle. But let’s be honest,not everything gets accomplished the first time and course design is a continual process that only gets better each time it is done. This is where redesigns come in! Redesigns give an opportunity for instructional designers and faculty to work together after the course has been taught and incorporate student feedback and quality assurance standards to drive the changes.
One of the things heard repeatedly from faculty is that they want to hear about what other faculty are doing. In the cohort, faculty from across disciplines can move from isolation to collaboration as they connect, work together, and provide feedback to their peers. The cohort runs for 7 weeks and faculty update their course as they go. Topics include:
Week 1: Looking Backwards and Forwards
Week 2: Refine Your Objectives and Alignment
Week 3: Vary Modes of Interaction
Week 4: Instructional Technology to Support Interaction
Week 5: Building with Instructional Technology
Week 6: Peer Review
Week 7: Final Design
Join us to learn and discuss how we designed and facilitated the cohort, our successes, failures, and next steps.
