Online Course Design Workshops

Each workshop consists of a series of presentations related to different aspects of online teaching and learning. These workshops focus on course development and implementation. For support for Blackboard tools, consider attending workshops offered by the Technology Resource Center. There will be three presentations every morning and three time slots in the afternoon for you to sign up to work with a staff member individually. Choose the presentations that interest you and attend as many as your schedule allows. The presentations will repeat over the four weeks, so you can repeat or attend a presentation at a later date.
