About the Summer Symposium:
The 2009 Summer Symposium takes a comprehensive and systematic approach to the design and development of online /hybrid courses. It coaches faculty with the instructional design process, strategies for building online collaboration, and methodologies of creating instructional activities/assignments. It is committed to promoting active learning, building effective online learning assessment, and developing successful online course management skills. This event demonstrates instructional technologies that can be integrated into online courses to facilitate online learning. It also provides an opportunity for faculty to create a working template for an online course with individual consultation with Technology Training and Integration (TTI) staff.
How the Summer Symposium Works:
The Summer Symposium is offered with face-to-face sessions. Participants engage in presentations, small group discussion, technology workshops and course design activities. Presentation sessions are facilitated by faculty who have experience in teaching online courses, are in the process of developing an online course, or who have effectively integrated technologies into teaching.
Resources and information will be provided to faculty on online course planning/analysis, design, development, implementation and evaluation. TTI staff will introduce the New Generation Blackboard 9.0 version to faculty. The technology workshops will provide hands-on practice of various instructional technologies. Faculty will have opportunities to create and develop their online course components.
