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 encourage 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. This workshop will be delivered completely asychronously over the course of two weeks in Desire 2 Learn. Information will be emailed to your kennesaw.edu address closer to the start date. Working knowledge of D2L is required prior to taking this workshop.

College teachers are well aware that students learn best when they are not fearful or anxious. We also know students lives may be affected by poverty, addiction, interpersonal violence, divorce, or the death of a family member or friend. Drawing upon developmental theories and recent studies about grit (Stoltz 2014) and perseverance through stressful times (Brown 2015), this webinar offers tools for teachers to discuss grades, classroom performance, or learning strategies for students in crisis.

KSU Peer Reviewer Training is now being offered for those interested in becoming more involved in KSU's internal online course reviews using the Quality Matters rubric. This certification includes two required components. The first part is delivered as a two-week online course, includes a review of the QM program and its guiding principles, and is delivered in the Quality Matters Learning Management System (Moodle). We will also examine the national QM review process, delve deeper into the general standards, and participants have the opportunity to practice writing feedback and reviewing a sample course. The second part is a 2.5 hour F2F session, or an alternative online module. This component explains the internal review process and allows participants to apply the skills learned in the online workshop. Participants find this aspect of the workshop very valuable.
