Integrating Ctls Into Campus Strategic Planning Through An Effective Brainstorming Process, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe

The authors explain the evolution of the process in a learning community from best practices in brainstorming through a working model. The process has been effective with actual groups both on and off campus (vs. laboratory conditions). “Collaboration drives creativity because innovation always emerges from a series of sparks ...

Designing Successful Online Courses, Part 1, Kathleen King Feb 2010

Designing Successful Online Courses, Part 1, Kathleen King

Kathleen P King

By a long shot, the most frequent question faculty ask me about online courses is "Where do I begin to design online learning?" This is an excellent question because it demonstrates the need to contemplate planning and designing online learning rather than haphazard construction. The "seat of the pants" approach has lead to many confusing and unsuccessful distance learning course designs. This article provides a proven approach which fits different ways to ease into distance learning for novice and advanced alike.
