Malcolm Brown, ELI director, and Veronica Diaz, ELI associate director moderate this seminar with Tina Stavredes. In the online environment, a course is available 24/7. The continuous accessibility of the online classroom demands that you develop new time management strategies. In addition, managing learner issues can be more difficult in the online learning environment than in a traditional learning environment. For some learners, the fact that they do not have to look a person in the eye makes it easier to act differently and exhibit inappropriate behaviors. There are also ethical issues of plagiarism that need to be managed and legal issues, such as copyright, that need to be considered.
Dr. Tina Stavredes will present a practical, hands-on workshop for faculty members, instructional designers and technologists, and others supporting online learning who are interested in discovering new ways to manage the online course environment. The workshop will be presented in an interactive fashion with presentation of information interspersed with polls, discussions, and hands-on activities. Participants will leave the workshop with a “toolkit” of ideas, templates, worksheets, and approaches to manage their online course.
As a result of this seminar, participants will be able to:
- Develop specific strategies to help organize and manage the online course environment
- Consider specific ways to streamline learning activities
- Explore behavioral and motivational issues that manifest themselves in the online environment and discuss solutions for managing them
- Understand the issue of plagiarism and learn how to identify and manage plagiarism when it occurs in an online course
- Evaluate copyright and fair use as it applies to the online environment
