Online Essentials show-and-tell Jan. 16

Submitted by Ashley Nietfeld

Kansas State University instructors who participated in the summer 2014 K-State Online Essentials course will present their new or redesigned online courses at a show-and-tell event 1:30-2:30 p.m. Jan. 16 in the Hale Library Hemisphere Room. The event is open to the public.

The event wraps up the K-State Online Essentials course, which had the purpose of equipping faculty with knowledge of the pedagogy and technology needed to teach online courses. Faculty who participated in the course were able to experience online learning from a student's perspective while mastering the competencies required to teach online successfully.

Faculty presenting at the event include Brandi Miller, grain science and industry; Alicia Brunson, American ethnic studies; Jean Folkerts, A.Q. Miller School of Journalism and Mass Communications; Joye Gordon, A.Q. Miller School of Journalism and Mass Communications; John Morris, accounting ; Ann Knackendoffel, special education, counseling and student affairs; Ann Coulson, School of Family Studies and Human Services; Elaine Johannes, School of Family Studies and Human Services; and Huston Gibson,  landscape architecture and regional & community planning.

The Online Essentials course was taught primarily online, with hands-on technology workshops throughout the summer. The course was designed and taught by K-State Salina's instructional designer, Lisa Craft, and was co-sponsored by K-State Global Campus, the Teaching and Learning Center and K-State Salina.

K-State Online Essentials will be offered again summer 2015. To learn more, contact Lynda Spire at lspire@k-state.edu.
