Participants completing this workshop will become familiar with and use best practices for creating and delivering a hybrid or online class. To put these practices to practical use faculty will use the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS) and other technology to develop a syllabus, create student support materials, and develop a complete lesson or module for their course. While participants will use Canvas to both engage in the workshop content as well as create their materials, this workshop is not designed to provide technical training on how to use Canvas.
Each person will create their own module for their own discipline, and the deliverables will be the same for everyone. Each participant must 1) participate in online quizzes and online discussions, 2) develop a comprehensive syllabus, 3) develop a getting started module, 4) develop one learning module (that includes learning objectives, module content, module activities and module assessment), 5) develop a communication plan/checklist for interaction with students and 6) develop a rubric.
*This 4-part hybrid workshop has been pre-approved for 14.5 hours of FPG.
The workshop materials reference the Quality Matters 2011-2013 Rubric.
