Strategies for Effective Online Learning

Hawkeye Community College is committed to providing a quality experience for the online student and recognizes that course development and delivery requires a level of organization and preparedness different than the traditional classroom. For online instructors, and increasingly for face-to-face instructors supplementing their courses with online resources, it is important to pay careful attention to course organization and design that improves student engagement, learning, and retention. During this short course, participants will experience online learning from the student perspective and examine learner-centered practices for designing virtual environments.

This workshop fulfills one of the requirements for Hawkeye's two-year faculty induction program. Each offering is moderated online/asynchronously for two weeks. No face-to-face meetings are required.

Teaching for Learning @Hawkeye

Faculty explore how students learn as they compare and contrast cognitive learning theories that inform individual teaching philosophies and provide rational for the instructional strategies they choose to help students make sense of course content. Hawkeye’s Standards for a College Course, a Classroom, and for Teaching are used to encourage faculty to be reflective practitioners that intentionally design learning experiences for students.

This workshop fulfills one of the requirements for Hawkeye's two-year faculty induction program. There are two 2-hour sessions for each offering.

Registering for the September 8 session automatically enrolls you in the September 22 session from 3:00-5:00 also.
