Advanced Techniques with Canvas: Designing (or Redesigning) your Course
Instructor: @ONE
(9:00am – 4:00pm)

Course design is a critical piece of effective online learning, but it remains a mysterious process for many online instructors. This workshop will demystify approaches to course design and illuminate why effective course design is correlated with improved student success. During the workshop, we’ll explore strategies for using Canvas tools to support course design, enhance student interaction, and develop robust assessments and activities to support student learning. By the end of the day, you will have a handle on how to design (or redesign) a quality online course that is aligned with the CCC OEI Course Design Rubric.

Humanizing Your Online Course
Instructor: @ONE
(9:00am – 4:00pm)

Online students who relate to their instructor as something more than a subject matter expert and feel as if they belong to a group, are more likely to be motivated, be satisfied with their learning, and succeed in achieving the course objectives (Picciano, 2002; Rovai & Barnum, 2003; Richardson & Swan, 2003). These are the effects of humanized online learning. This workshop will present both the theory and practice of humanizing, discuss why humanizing is especially important to our underserved students, and provide you with practical strategies and tools to implement in your online course.

Great Online Teachers Seminar
Facilitated by
Michelle Pacansky-Brock, Ed.D. (@brocansky)
(9:00am – 4:00pm)

Back for the second year! Since the 1960s, the National Great Teachers Movement has inspired thousands of educators. This event will leverage the concept of a GTS, but with a twist! As an online instructor, you understand that online teaching is unique from face-to-face teaching. And, as such, you need dedicated time to share, listen, and discuss the opportunities and challenges that come along with online teaching and learning. This 1-day seminar will provide a positive environment for online instructors to connect, share, and grow together in community. Participants will complete pre-work online using tools from Google Suite.
