The Online Course Development Workshop is a two-week online/f2f workshop and is one pathway to online teaching certification at KSU. (See below for the all online three week option).
This training will explore aspects of online pedagogy, effective practices for online course design and introduce the Quality Matters (QM) Rubric for Online Courses which provides a framework for designing, developing, and improving online courses. This is the only CETL workshop that will lead to online teaching certification at KSU. You must be a current KSU instructor to register for this workshop.
Since this workshop is delivered in a hybrid format, you will participate in synchronous and asynchronous online activities and one face-to-face session. You will have the opportunity to experience online instruction from a students' perspective, complete activities at your own pace, and explore various course tools. Please note: Alternative online coursework can substitute for the f2f segment, if scheduling issues exist for you.
By registering for this webinar, you are responsible for completing all 3 components of the workshop described below. This is part 1 of a 3 part workshop. You will not see a Part 2 on this website, as it is the asynchronous part of the workshop. Please read below for more information.
After completing this training, you should be able to:
- Identify the underlying principles & essential standards of the QM rubric

- Recognize and integrate effective practices in your online course design and delivery
- Identify the KSU groups that support online learning

Participants will be required to complete all three components of the training. This includes:
- a live webinar (Oct 30 - 1:00-2:00pm) Information will be emailed to your kennesaw.edu address closer to the date of the webinar. This is recorded for those who cannot attend.
