This webinar with Dr. Laura Davis, the winner of KSU's 2017 Outstanding Teacher award, explores ways to create an explicitly inclusive (warm) climate in an online classroom.

Creating a detailed lesson plan provides instructors with a guide for what and how students will learn in that particular session and how the class will progress. In this workshop, we will examine the basics of lesson plan creation and walk through the steps of writing a useable lesson plan for one class meeting. Come with ideas and we will move through the process together, from identifying the goals of the session, planning the activities, and determining how student learning will be assessed.

One of the factors that affect the quality of online courses is instructor facilitation. There are many aspects of facilitation that contribute to a successful online course. This workshop is designed for faculty members who are teaching a course they developed or one a colleague created. We will look at why it is important to focus on course facilitation, what successful facilitation looks like, ways to provide effective feedback, creating a sense of community, time management strategies, and how to ensure instructor presence in an online course. This workshop would be appropriate for anyone getting ready to facilitate an online course, or in the beginning stages of doing this.

As part-time faculty members we are often very busy with multiple ongoing tasks including full-time jobs, families, and research--it can be overwhelming. Using rubrics to grade student work can save you time and will clarify your expectations to your students. In this interactive and productive one-hour workshop you will learn about different types of rubrics, how to create one, and how to use it to clarify and speed up the grading process. Bring the description of one of your assignments and leave with the beginnings of an actual rubric you can use.
