RANGER RECOVERY: Updated mask / face covering requirements

Instructional design is the process of analyzing learning needs and goals and the development of an instructional plan to meet those needs and goals. The Innovations in Learning team is available to assist faculty and staff in creating goals and action plans to efficiently meet the needs of their courses and workshops both online and face-to-face. The Innovations team provides both workshops and 1-on-1 consultations for instructional design.

Summer 2022 Workshop on Online Teaching & Learning

The Online Course Developers Workshop is open to all full-time faculty and instructional staff at UW-Parkside.

The goal of the workshop is for each participant to produce a fully online course that will be taught at some point during the 2022-23 academic year. Participants should have some proficiency with the typical functions of the Canvas learning management system. Because of the intensity of the training and the workload associated with course development, we ask that you strongly consider limiting your teaching responsibilities during the summer session. Special consideration will be provided for courses that will be integrated into either certificate, associate degree or fully online degree completion programs.

Given that so many of you have already taught online or in a hybrid format due to the pandemic, the workshop this year (hosted entirely online) will focus largely on getting the most out of students in an online environment. We’ll look at the benefits of synchronous vs asynchronous teaching, active learning techniques, using open educational resources, how to create an equitable virtual classroom environment, and much more.

To apply, please submit a 1-2 page response to innovations@uwp.edu addressing what you feel you already know about online teaching and areas you’d like to improve. Please also include the written approval of your department chair (this can be in a separate email).
