Return to Workshop Development
This intensive, four-week-long workshop is designed to engage you in theoretical and practical aspects of online learning and teaching with a Learning Management System called Moodle. By successfully completing the program you will be ready to teach blended online learning (BOL) or blended learning (BL) courses using Moodle. In the workshop, you will be introduced to online learning pedagogies and best practices. Moodle course development tools will be demonstrated, reviewed and practiced. You will collaborate in teams to design or redesign your course content, integrate synchronous and asynchronous learning activities into your course, add resources, develop assessments for online learning, and share and reflect on the process of developing online or blended online courses.
The goal of the course is to help educators ensure the quality of online learning through systematic instructional design of online and blended online courses (BOL) and instructor training on online pedagogies.
As online learners, you will learn to understand online learning from the student's perspective so you can prepare your future courses with the learner in mind.
