Are you new to teaching online? Have you taught an online course that wasn't as successful as you had planned? Maybe the student feedback was negative, or the grade distribution was not what you had expected. We can help! In this workshop, Jeff Irwin will share his experience designing and facilitating his first online course. From working with course designers, compliance with Quality Matters methodology and facilitating weekly discussion boards, Jeff will share tips and tricks that helped him succeed. He'll also discuss the challenges he faced, and changes he has made in subsequent courses. Participants will learn syllabus creation, course organization, best practices for using technology and solutions for communicating with students in the online environment. The session will conclude with an informal question-and-answer session focused on issues group members have encountered in their teaching.
