Register now for the summer Online Course Design Institute

Submitted by Trina McCarty

Global Campus, K-State Salina, 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 summer offering.

The institute will provide a five-week course-preparation experience May 28-June 28 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 to provide participants the opportunity to experience the online learner's perspective.

The institute will engage the learner in five modules. Participants successfully 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 prior to the institute or have any questions about the program, please contact the Global Campus Instructional Design team or Lisa Shappee, director for instructional design and faculty support at K-State Salina.
