Calling all Faculty and Graduate Teaching Assistants who want to improve their course design skills and/or Canvas knowledge. The Online Readiness Course (ORC) begins January 8th.  This course rigorously explores all the Canvas tools necessary to take a course you have already taught in a face-to-face environment and redesign it with the online learner in mind.

As a student in ORC, you will progress through the following Modules:

  1. Module 1: Orientation. Checking your tech prerequisites; getting to know each other; introducing the Principles of Online Pedagogy (POP) framework.
  2. Module 2: Designing Your Environment. Your classroom is a place, not a filing cabinet! Careful user experience (UX) design helps your online space actively encourage student engagement.
  3. Module 3: Designing Your Content. From pedagogical considerations like active learning and universal design, to tech considerations like choosing appropriate media types, this module focuses on creating course content that fits the online environments you're using.
  4. Module 4: Interacting. Instructor presence and community-building are important, and work differently online than in a physical space. Developing your presence and baseline habits is crucial to success.
  5. Module 5: Revising, Iterating, and Troubleshooting. Responding quickly and effectively to the unexpected is a critical skill for any online instructor.

There are no texts to purchase. All readings, media and all other required materials will be provided within the course!

Each Assignment contains the materials required for you to complete it successfully. In addition, every Module contains further readings to deepen your understanding of the principles and practices you've encountered. At the end of the course, you will be awarded a Digital Badge through our Hornet Badges portal.

Please email Dr. Anna Catterson acatters@emporia.edu if interested in enrolling!
