Introduction to Course Design (21SP-ICD-3)
May 3, 2021
May 3 – May 30, 2021
The power of an online course comes from careful planning and intentional design. Blending the concepts of backward design with universal design with hands-on practice, you’ll gain mastery in the skills needed to purposefully design an engaging, high-quality online course that captures–and keeps–your students’ attention. You’ll leave with a robust plan and the solid foundation of your newly envisioned course.
By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- discuss the value of using the OEI Course Design Rubric to design a quality online course,
