December 2019: OCI – Online Course Planning and Development

Kicking Off Summer 2020 Course Development

The course development cycle for online and hybrid courses launching in summer 2020 kicked-off on Thursday, January 2. Courses that are new or under redesign, and that need to have the syllabus reviewed and provisionally approved by the AEC, will need to finish syllabus development by mid-February. Instructional Designers assigned to those projects will work with Staff Associates to submit syllabi to the Academic Director for review on or around October 5.

New for Spring: Instructional Design Office Hours
Beginning in spring 2020, the Instructional Design team will hold online office hours for all faculty. During office hours, faculty can consult with an Instructional Design team member to obtain just-in-time guidance related to course design, regardless of modality. More information will be provided to all faculty closer to the start of the spring 2020 semester.
