Beyond Course Design: Planning for Successful Facilitation
Focus On Online Quality
Results released in "Staying the Course: Online Education in the United States, 2008" found a “12.9% growth rate for online enrollments exceeding the 1.2% growth of the overall higher education student population…demonstrating no signs of slowing.”
In this brave new world of online instruction, smart universities are focused on quality.
After all, you want your online offerings to enhance–not undermine–your university’s reputation.
But building or re-working your curriculum is only half the battle. You must also ensure that your online courses are facilitated successfully.
In this 90-minute seminar, presented by Carole Robinson and Joan Van Duzer, you’ll be introduced to the Assessing Online Facilitation (AOF) and the carefully-researched structure that makes it such a valuable self assessment and peer evaluation tool. With a full set of checklists and handouts, you’ll receive all the materials you need to implement the AOF.
During this seminar you’ll learn:
- The key criteria that influence student satisfaction and learning.
- How to meet these criteria in an online (as opposed to face-to-face) environment.
- The different roles of an online facilitator
- Specific techniques that improve online teaching effectiveness.
- Valuable tips for structuring successful repeated facilitation. (You get this form as a handout!)
- How to guide peer evaluation of facilitator performance in the online classroom.
