Tuesday, June 26 6:00 PM-7:00 PM Location: Koepelzaal
Presider: Douglass Scott, Waseda University, Japan
Abstract: The ongoing relationship forged between faculty and instructional developer (ID) as they create an online course is unique and engaging requiring both pedagogical and technical expertise (Caplan & Graham, 2004). As faculty and ID collaborate in the course development, they embark on a journey of exploring how the process is supported by a peer-based approach to quality assurance (Quality Matters) and continuous improvement in online education, how to implement it and adapt it in specific course contexts. Moreover, both faculty and ID engage in a conversation on review, redesign, self-study, and peer evaluation. The purpose of this presentation is to discuss how the process of conceptualizing an online course begins, how the partnership between faculty and developer grows, and how a completed course comes alive through this dynamic partnership which contributes to building a campus-wide culture of online teaching and learning to improve student learning experience.
