Offered in July, this program is a venue for new online instructors to learn about course design, develop relationships with instructional designers, and become acquainted with current strategies being used online by TWU colleagues. The program begins with an interactive four-week online course in which instructors begin to build major course elements with emphasis on planning, designing, and managing four key types of students interactions in an online course.
- Interactions with instructors
- Interactions with technology
- Interactions with course content
- Interactions with classmates
After the first four weeks, instructors work individually with instructional designers during the fall and spring semester to complete the design process. Participants complete the program when their online course successfully meets the Quality Matters standards after an informal review process.
The program is aimed at full-time faculty new to TWU without experience teaching in the online environment. Faculty with previous online teaching experience will not be considered for the program. Each participant will receive a $1,500 stipend upon fulfillment of project requirements.
Department chairs or program heads will notify faculty meeting the eligibility requirements about the program. Completed applications should be sent to the Office of Teaching and Learning with Technology, P.O. Box 425649, Denton, Texas 76204-5649. The TLT office is located in Stoddard Hall, room 313.
