Register now for the spring Online Course Design Institute

Submitted by Ashley Nietfeld

Global Campus, the Salina Aerospace and Technology Campus, and the Teaching and Learning Center are offering the Online Course Design Institute at no cost, but limited seats are available. Faculty and graduate students can register online for the spring offering.

The institute will provide a five-week course-preparation experience Jan. 30-March 3, 2023, for K-State faculty and graduate students who are currently teaching or plan to develop an online course in the next year. The institute will be offered completely online with some synchronous components to provide participants the opportunity to experience the distance learner's perspective.

The institute will engage the learner in five modules. Participants completing all requirements will earn a certificate of completion. Through each module, we will explore elements of effective course design in online teaching:

  • Module 1: Teaching Persona, Philosophy and Practice.
  • Module 2: Fundamentals of Online Teaching and Learning.
  • Module 3: Tools for Integrating Technology into Teaching and Learning.
  • Module 4: Student Success in Online Teaching and Learning.
  • Module 5: Assessment in Online Teaching and Learning.

Basic knowledge of Canvas is required. If you need Canvas training or have any questions about the program, please contact Trina McCarty, instructional designer at Global Campus, or Lisa Shappee, director for instructional design and faculty support at K-State Salina.
