As we emerge from this unexpected fully remote teaching semester, the next practical step is to think intentionally about expanding our online teaching practices. To address any potential need, STaR is offering a recurring course this summer called Fast Track to Teaching Online, facilitated by Dr. Daryl Tate, Assistant Professor and Program Coordinator for the Learning Systems Technology Education Master of Education Program.
This two-day online webinar course using Blackboard Collaborate will provide instruction and hands on experience to UA Little Rock faculty that have converted or will be converting a face-to-face course(s) to an online format in Blackboard. Faculty will integrate their existing course content into the Blackboard Learning Management System using design and development practices informed by STaR Online Course Design Quality Assurance Standards.
Topics covered in the course will be:
- Developing a Syllabus for the Online Learner
- Creating a Course Overview and Introduction
- Designing Consistent Course Navigation and Organization
- Aligning Learning Objectives with Activities and Assessments
- Incorporating Formative and Summative Assessments
- Developing Content for Accessibility and Universal Design
This course is open to all UA Little Rock faculty at no cost. Course participants should know the basics of navigating the Blackboard learning environment prior to taking this course. For those needing to brush-up prior to taking this course, easy-to-use valuable resources on those basics are found here: Blackboard Basics.
This two day course will be offered on the following dates:
May 20-21, 2020 | June 2-3, 2020 | July 1-2, 2020 | August 4-5, 2020
