Conference Abstract:

Learn how to plan a faculty development program for online course design and teaching that combines adult-learning strategies with interactive online activities, face-to-face group meetings, and peer learning. The presenters will highlight strategies from a campus pilot that placed faculty in the role of online “students.” Take away ideas to help instructors experience and apply effective pedagogical and technological approaches.
