Blended/Online Learning Workshop 2014
Applications for the 2014 workshop are now being accepted.
With support from the Office of the Provost, representatives from the Center for Instructional Innovation & Assessment (CIIA), Academic Technology & User Services (ATUS), and Extended Education (EE) conduct a 6-week intensive workshop to interested instructors, entitled Teaching a Blended/Online Course.
The goal of this six-week blended-format workshop is to take the participants through the planning, design, and implementation process of creating a blended or online course, provide an opportunity to experience a “blended format” course, and give them the ability to create blended/online courses on their own.
- Each successful participant for the “certificate option” will receive a $500 stipend and a certificate of completion (see syllabus for additional information and requirements). In addition, all certificate option participants will receive a headset and book on the first day of the workshop.
- A limited number of participants are also welcome to participate without this reward, in the “audit-only” option.
- This workshop is limited to WWU instructors, with priority given to those planning to teach blended/hybrid courses.
- Participants may expect to spend approximately 6 hours per week on workshop-related meetings, activities, and homework.
- We will be using the Canvas learning management environment both for workshop delivery and for participants to have a practice “sandbox” course.
- Applicants must be instructors at WWU.
- Applicants preparing to teach an online or blended delivery course within the next academic year will be given first priority. (Course need not be identified as such in the registration system to qualify.)
- Applicants must be available for two sessions per week during the 6-week workshop (during Winter Quarter). Synchronous session dates and times to be announced.
