|"Course Design Considerations for Online Delivery" offered again|
Due to overwhelming response to our Feb. 13 On Teaching discussion, we are offering a repeat session of “Course Design Considerations for Online Delivery.” Clearly, distance learning is an important growth area in higher education. At UND many on-campus courses utilize online delivery for some aspects of the curriculum while Continuing Education offers students both semester and independent study formats for completing courses completely online. Many teachers are concerned about the implications of distance delivery for their classes and student learning, and are working hard to measure and assess how students learn in these online delivery formats, employing a variety of techniques for engaging and motivating students and assessing their learning.
Jane Sims (continuing education), Katherine Anderson (teaching and learning), Victoria Beard (associate provost), and Joshua Reidy (dean, outreach programs) will present "Course Design Considerations for Online Delivery," a second time from 3 to 4 p.m. Friday, March 28, in Swanson 10/12. They will share techniques for enhancing student learning in distance delivery formats. We will also discuss how continuing education courses are evolving to mainstream into the UND campus community.
