DDS Workshop Summer 2017 – New and Improved

Once again we will be hosting our two-week summer workshop – Designing and Developing your Online Course. We have made some changes and improvements, so check out the details below. Because we are making changes to reflect the new features coming in Springboard, we do not yet have the daily schedule, but we will post it as soon as we can.

Designing and Developing Your Online Course: A Hands-On Workshop

  • Meets: Monday-Friday from 9:30 AM – 3:30 PM
  • Starts: Monday, June 19th
  • Ends: Friday, June 30th
  • Location: Bierce 154

This workshop will teach you how to develop a fully online or hybrid course. This workshop includes hands-on experience and covers all of the steps in designing and developing your course. Design and Development Services (DDS) staff will lead hands-on instructional sessions on how to complete each of the tasks and then you will have time to work in small groups with a designer to practice and implement these new skills.

If you were familiar with the previous incarnation of the “DDS 40 Hour Workshop”, you will be excited to know we’ve made some updates. We will be teaching you how to use all the newest features of Springboard and revising the session order  to better reflect the course development process. We have also reduced the overall time by 10 hours to make attendance a little more manageable with your other responsibilities. The most exciting update is that we have added the official QM training to this workshop so you will graduate with a QM Applying the QM Rubric (APPQMR) certificate, in addition to your workshop completion certificate. 

Pre-reqs: You should be comfortable using the basic features of Springboard. You should come prepared with your existing syllabus for the course you plan to develop.
