Launching September 26th, this open course will provide both theoretical concepts and practical tools for instructors to recognize, organize, and build courses for both blended learners and online learners.
You will learn from 11 instructors and instructional designers including distinguished Exemplary Course Program (ECP) Directors and several of the 2012 ECP winners. Using the Blackboard Exemplary Course Program (ECP) Rubric as a guide, the course will focus on the four critical elements of a course: design, interaction and collaboration, assessment, and learner support.
You will have the opportunity to participate in weekly live, online sessions, learn with peers in focus groups, and complete optional assignments to aid your course development and improvement. A panel of course design experts will facilitate each group to provide you with valuable feedback.
The course will run from September 26th - October 17th, 2012.
