Considerations for Adopting and Teaching Fully Developed Online Courses

Presented by:

Dr. Martin Gaal, Lecturer, Political Studies and International Studies, University of Saskatchewan

JR Dingwall, Instructional Designer, Distance Education Unit, University of Saskatchewan

A fully developed online course is a very different beast from in-person classes or even classes delivered remotely. Online classes are more structured, often including predetermined learning outcomes, activities and assessments, and both written and media-based learning materials. These classes can seem to break the connection between students and instructors, leaving both feeling isolated and unengaged. But this does not need to be the case! Online courses offer different pedagogies that can enhance engagement, foster active learning, and foster new skills in students. This session will introduce some considerations for adopting and teaching online classes and facilitate a conversation about opportunities and challenges for your courses.
