Instructor: John Doherty
Dates: December 2-16, 2013
Credits: 0.75 CEUs
This two-week, online seminar will help instructors new to online learning develop content, assessments, and activities that are aligned to particular standards, expectations, or outcomes. Participants will work on developing their own unit of learning through the three phases of backward design: learning expectations, learning assessment, and learning activities. The emphasis will be on technological agnostic units, but the focus will be on delivery through Moodle. The seminar will be highly interactive, with an expectation of peer mentoring and frequent interactions.
Dr. John J. Doherty is an instructional designer with the Northern Arizona University’s e-Learning Center. From 1993 to 2007 he worked in academic libraries, with an emphasis on library instruction and critical information literacy. He has published and presented nationally and internationally in these areas, including “Design to learn, learn to design: using backward design for information literacy instruction” (co-authored with Bruce E. Fox in Communications in Information Literacy, 5.2, 2011).
This is an online class that is taught asynchronously, meaning that participants do the work on their own time as their schedules allow. The class does not meet together at any particular times, although the instructor may set up optional sychronous chat sessions. Instruction includes readings and assignments in one-week segments. Class participation is in an online forum environment.
