Remote Instruction: Course Delivery and Design


The Center for Teaching and Learning and the Office of Continuing and Distance Education have partnered to offer, Remote Instruction: Course Delivery and Design, a week-long workshop, designed for faculty to learn more about options for remote instruction. 


This workshop is currently scheduled to be offered twice this summer (Session 1: May 26-29; Session 2: June 29-July 6). Participants are expected to attend all 5 days of the workshop, participate fully, and prepare an action plan due within 1 week after the end of the workshop.


Our workshop will provide participants with the knowledge and skills needed to begin or continue the work of moving their traditional face-to-face courses to a remote instruction format. Topics covered will include: backward design (linking objectives, activities and assessments); assessment; discussion/engagement techniques; and collaborative work. We will cover options for both synchronous and asynchronous approaches to meet specific learning objectives. Ample time will be provided for consultation with workshop facilitators, instructional designers, and technical support personnel. At the end of the workshop, faculty will be expected to have an action plan for moving forward with remote instruction. Participants are also expected to share what they have learned with colleagues, for example by serving as a mentor to others.  


Participants meeting all requirements of the workshop (attendance, workshop activities and an action plan) will receive a $1000 stipend upon completion of the workshop. All faculty are eligible to apply, pending receipt of a letter of support from their unit administrator (further details follow). 


The sessions will be offered synchronously on Blackboard from 1-4 each day.

Option 1 is scheduled to meet May 26-29; June 1 from 1pm to 4pm
Option 2 is scheduled to meet June 29-30; July 1-2; July 6 from 1pm to 4pm
