CTL attendees from January 2018

New faculty development workshop titles, new teaching certificates, and new points partners brought a record number of faculty and staff to our January events. Between January 10th and January 26th, 328 participants attended 17 CTL events in seven UAB campus locations. There are lots more great events coming up this semester!

How To. With online courses, it is important that students always have a clear understanding of what is expected of them and how they should properly progress through the course. This is also important for any materials that are distributed via Canvas for traditional face-to-face courses, but for online students, a course lacking sufficient guidance and information can be particularly stressful and problematic for both the student and the instructor. In this "How-To" we'll be looking at Canvas modules, and some suggestions as to how you can best organize them for your courses.

How To. Many factors make a course worthy of being called a “quality” online course. Organizations such as Quality Matters, the Online Learning Consortium (formerly Sloan-C), and iNACOL (K-12 focus) develop standards for measuring the quality of online courses. Within the College of Arts and Sciences, we primarily use the Quality Matters Rubric when reviewing courses. This review process can be time-consuming and arduous, so we wanted to provide you with a (relatively) short list of things to take into account when developing your online course. This list is not meant to replace a more detailed course review, but rather give you a place to start.

How To.

The process of developing an online course can be a difficult one, especially if the instructor has never developed a course for online delivery. While many years of classroom experience can be useful for understanding the course objectives, all aspects of the course will need to be re-examined and developed for online delivery. This short checklist will give you a broad overview of the course development process and the expected timeline.
