ITC Annual Conf. - Going Online Overnight, Strickfaden, Salahub, Mitchell

ITC Annual Conf. - Going Online Overnight, Strickfaden, Salahub, Mitchell

This session is a collaboration of two organizations and will walk through two effective responses to emergency faculty skilling-up needs due to the impact of COVID-19. Two separate teams formed to rapidly develop similar online, asynchronous workshops for faculty to learn the essentials of teaching online. Part 1 will compare the workshops these design teams developed, including team reflection on experiences and insights for why and how they designed and developed the programming as through Fall 2020. Part 2 is an exploration of the workshops’ impact, including workshop assessment methods, results, and highlights. Part 3 will be a participant discussion of collective experiences in similar educational development programs for faculty teaching online. Case Study 1 - The Essentials of Online Teaching (EOT) workshop from Colorado Community Colleges Online (CCCOnline) – a two- week workshop for instructors moving from face-to-face to online learning as an emergency response to COVID-19 shifts. The workshop recipe included: 20 sections, 20-30 seats per section, 6 2-week sessions, 6 months of delivery, 19 facilitators, 600 faculty participants, 13 different home colleges. The workshop learning focused on backwards design for course planning, shifting current course activities to intentionally online activities, and utilizing the learning management system (D2L) effectively and quickly. The faculty satisfaction rate was 95% for this rapidly developed, limited budget emergency response to COVID! Case Study 2 – Online Essentials Workshop from Front Range Community College – a two week workshop for FRCC faculty and instructors designed to be Part 1 of a required training for fully online teaching. Due to the Covid-19 crisis, FRCC also needed to use this Online Essentials workshop as preparation for the hundreds of teachers preparing to teach in other modalities including web- video and online hybrid classes. The workshop included 22 cohorts, 14 facilitators, and about 600 participants. The workshop focused on giving participants the experience of being a student in an online course intentionally designed around FRCC’s online course quality guidelines and to help participants explore how to design and teach in an online modality. FRCC is now analyzing feedback from participants and other stakeholders.

The moderator for this session will be Faith Jelley.
