 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.

 Teaching for Learning @Hawkeye

Faculty explore how students learn as they compare and contrast cognitive learning theories that inform their individual teaching philosophy and provide rationale 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.
