The Pathway to Master Online Instructor Program (Pathway) was created to help faculty learn the fundamentals of course development and delivery, and current trends in the field of online learning. The Pathway program includes five unique courses that address online teaching, online course design, ADA compliance, and Quality Matters.
The Online Course Design Certificate, an 8-week Pathway course, prepares faculty to effectively design learning objectives, instructional materials, active learning activities, and authentic assessment for online delivery using QM standards. This session will showcase the course, describe the design process, highlight challenges and solutions, and explain significant changes that were made to improve the course design. The session will also report on course participants' satisfaction and perceived impact on the quality of their course design practices.
