Welcome to the Online Teaching Course!
This is a six week (highly interactive) learning experience. As a course participant you will be exposed to (and participate in) a wide range of topics related to creating a quality and interactive online learning experience. The course is fully online and we will utilize the course management system to complete both the A-synchronous and Synchronous components of the course. The course is organized around six weekly modules and each module will contain assigned reading, an online lesson, a discussion forum, and an online chat session. For the weekly online chat sessions we will utilize a virtual classroom that will require you to have a microphone and camera. During the first week of the course each participant will be assigned a section of the course where you will work to create an actual learning module that can be used by you in future course development. You will have access to your course instructors at any time through the course email system. You should check your emails daily for important messages from the course instructors.
We are looking forward to an interactive learning experience and we invite you to be actively engaged in this course as we learn to how develop active and engaging courses for those you will soon be teaching online.
