This one-day workshop will address critical questions about online teaching and learning such as: How do students work in groups and teams online? How will student complete projects in an online course? How are group and individual interactions measured and assessed? What role can industry take in an online course? Faculty and K-12 educators who have struggled with how to design engaging instruction in an online environment will find answers in this workshop. The session will introduce participants to the rich features of leading LMS/CMS systems such as Blackboard, WebCT and Moodle. From there, participants will explore the dynamics of online interactions while applying methods used to teach and model employability skills in classrooms. Session participants will leave with a viable course design, an enhanced syllabus and hands-on practice in how to engage students in authentic tasks, projects and problems.
