Yoga as a Metaphor for Instructional Design: Using the Practice of Yoga to Explore the Collaborative Processes of Building Quality Online Courses
How does one lead a team in a collaborative process of building quality online courses? The practice of yoga provides a compelling image through which to explore the presence and work of those who lead design teams. Toward that end, the metaphor can help faculty and instructional designers begin work with a design team, assume their professional persona, work the creative process, deal with competing forces to create something new, lead difficult team members, endure complications with patience, and learn from their work. This workshop is not really about yoga, but you may learn some!
