Advanced Online Teaching Fellows
The Advanced Online Teaching Fellows course is a blended course offered to experienced online faculty members to improve the design and delivery of online courses. With objectives and activities based around the Quality Matters rubric for Online Design, the course will prepare faculty to become engaged, skilled online teachers and to submit their course for a Quality Matter review.
The blended course covers a range of pedagogical, design and technology topics that are designed to prompt participants to reflect on their online course's impact on student's learning. Our discussions both online and in-person revolve around the questions below, and many more.
- How do I know my online students are learning as deeply as my face-to-face students?
- How can I be more 'me' in my online course?
- How can I be a more effective online instructor?
- How can I be a more efficient online instructor?
- How can I prompt deeper, more interesting discussions online?
- How do I make my online class more relevant and more authentic for my students and myself?
Following the course, participants redesign their online course with the assistance of an instructional designer and technologist before submitting their course for Quality Matters recognition.
