Online Teaching Professional Development

This spring, many instructors transformed their instructional practice to emergency remote teaching. Well-planned online learning experiences are meaningfully different from courses offered online in response to a crisis or disaster. This summer, MCC will offer all courses online. All instructors teaching online courses for the summer 2020 session are invited to participate in this 2-part professional development series, and utilize the next five weeks to develop their courses.

  • Attend both sessions and schedule a 1:1 consultation with a CTL/eLearning designer to show how you are applying the online course templates to your practice and earn a $125 stipend. You may attend the sessions in person (virtually) or watch each recorded session.
  • Explore the CTL calendar for additional trainings.

Online Course Planning, Part 1

Each semester, instructors make decisions about their instructional practice. Course duration, modality, instructional materials, trends in the field, and more influence course planning. During this session, faculty will explore a three-pronged approach to course planning: What do you teach? Which instructional materials will you use? How will you evaluate student learning? These fundamental principles of course design should be applied to each new semester, especially when there is a change in the course modality (e.g. in person to online). Engage with a process to plan your summer online courses.

Live Online Sessions: Mondays and Tuesdays • 11:00AM-12:00PM

Online Course Design, Part 2

Effective online learning is relative to these seven dimensions: pacing, pedagogy, instructor role online, student role online, online communication synchrony, role of online assessments, and source of feedback. Leveraging tools in the college learning management system is also a key to success. During this session, faculty will explore a Canvas course template to inspire online course design. All participants will have access to use and adapt the template to their summer online course design.

Live Online Sessions: Wednesdays and Thursdays • 11:00AM-12:00PM
