Come join us for a live 75 minute online seminar “How to Balance Online Learner Needs and Instructor Workload” at the Kirk library-Room 139, Wednesday, February 23, 2011 at 10.00 a.m. You do not need to sign up ahead of time.
This seminar will provide tangible, working solutions that you can use to modify your approach and create active learning. You’ll learn how to:
•Create an environment that’s welcoming to students, yet compels them to work and think individually.
•Develop assignments and grading strategies to increase student interaction.
•Avoid feeling overwhelmed by the perceived 24×7 nature of student participation in asynchronous online courses.
•Connect students to other members of their class, thereby reducing their reliance on instructors.
By the end of the course, you’ll have the blueprint for a new approach to distance education. You’ll discover a more fulfilling, less stressful teaching methodology. Your students will enjoy a much more fulfilling educational experience, and your course evaluations will reflect it.
If you are unable to make it to the live seminar we are purchasing a seminar cd for your convenience.
