“Over 70 percent of degree-granting institutions offer online classes, and while technical resources abound, the courses often fall short of integrating the best practices in online pedagogy, even if they comply with online course design standards.” (Wiley, 2019) At this colloquium, JMU instructors with a broad spectrum of online teaching experience and from diverse disciplines are invited to a facilitated conversation to “bring pedagogy and cognitive science to online learning environments”, based on the Nilson and Goodson (2017) book, Online Teaching at Its Best: A Merger of Instructional Design with Teaching and Learning Research.


  • Develop a shared understanding of best practice of teaching online with with the optimal integration of instructional design and pedagogy
  • Recognize the value of mutual informative roles of teaching and learning research with instructional design
  • Develop a network at JMU that continually pursues the high quality of online teaching through consistent integration of best practice of instructional design and pedagogy with a foundation in the scholarship of teaching and learning
