As a signature program that supports teaching and learning, JMU Libraries presents the Institute for Online and Blended Course Design. This year’s institute will continue to facilitate opportunities for faculty to learn about the design and development of online courses through the expertise of fellow online instructors, instructional design faculty, educational technologists, and the networked wisdom of JMU faculty with years of experience in online teaching as we share with you the pedagogical and technical expertise needed to create a high-quality course.

The institute will weave 40 hours of learning and design with consultation, mentoring, and time/space/resources on course development. Meetings will occur weekly on Tuesdays from September to October from 1:00-5:00 pm in Rose Library TLT classroom and innovation space. Participants will work closely with instructional design faculty, technology instructors, and peer mentors to gain skills, design course structure and activities, and explore creative possibilities for teaching and learning.

On November 27, the institute will celebrate the course design accomplishment with participants’ showcase of their designed courses.

At the completion of the institute, participants should expect to gain a foundation in instructional design for online environments, technical skill in the use of digital technologies, and efficacy to extend individual teaching talent in a technology-infused environment. The designed courses are expected to reflect the following attributes:

------Clear course structure

------Professional self-introduction of instructor

------Assessment and measurement aligned with learning objectives

------Variety of instructional content

------Engaging learning activities

------Student support

------Universal Design Principles applied

At the satisfactory completion of the institute and the creation of their online course, a participant will receive $2,000 stipend as a recognition of her/his commitment to professional development in extending teaching potential and engaging students inclusively with technology-integrated learning access.

Institute for Online and Blended Course Design will be on Sept. 4, 11, 18, 25, Oct. 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, and Nov. 27, at 1:00-5:00 pm, 5th floor of Rose Library.
