Faculty Development: Virtual Course Design Challenge

Source for your MSU Faculty Development Needs

Virtual Course Design Challenge





Welcome! Join Dr. Firm Faith Watson, Director of the Faculty Development Center to help you design or redesign your course with the flexibility to facilitate it in various formats, (including face-to-face, hybrid, hyflex, or online). You are invited to observe or participate in a Virtual Course Design Challenge that includes weekly meetings via Zoom and learning modules in Canvas.

What’s in it for you? During the Challenge, participants will receive practical help to plan their course, write measurable learning objectives, develop assessments, select appropriate learning materials and technologies, design learner interaction and engagement in various modalities, and more. Participants will be challenged to design at least one learning module in Canvas, and a certificate will be awarded that may be included in their annual performance appraisal.
