Bi-annual Workshops: Build a Web Course Workshop
The College of Humanities and Social Sciences' Distance
Education Program offers the Online Course Development
Workshop once per year in the spring semester for faculty that
are ready to create a hybrid or online course. There are two
forms of the course taught: the "Basic" and the "Advanced"
course. The creation of these newly developed hybrid or
online courses will result in a payment of $3,000 to
participants. The courses are led by Dr. Tamara Powell, Dr.
Vanessa Slinger-Friedman. Applications for spring 2015 Build a Web
Course Workshop are available for submission until November 7, 2014.
Please see the workshop application and schedule below:
The next Build a Web Course Workshop will be offered in the
spring of 2016.
The Skills Update Workshops
The Skills Update
workshops are an attempt to answer the many requests
from faculty who have successfully completed the "Build
a Web Course" workshop and wish to update their skills
and create more online and hybrid courses. These
are taught by Dr. Jake McNeil and Ms. Nikki Hill. In
spring 2015, CHSS Office of Distance Education will
offer two workshops: The Skills Update Workshop and the
Advanced Skills Update Workshop. Ten faculty will be
accepted for each workshop. Workshop participants will
commit to building a complete online or hybrid course by
May 25, 2015. In addition, participants will choose and
complete nine of 12 available "skills update" online
modules on topics such as cloud computing, creating
streaming video, and online pedagogy.
The Advanced Skills Update Workshop
cannot be taken unless the "Skills Update Workshop"
has been successfully completed.
The Skills Update Workshop cannot
be taken unless the "Build a Web Course Workshop" has
been successfully completed.
Participants that successfully
create an online or hybrid course are paid $1000 each
if certain criteria are met.
