Course Description

This workshop is designed to simplify course or  unit design by modeling a systematic approach to instructional design. Unit and  course design is by nature complex, but in this workshop we will apply 2  instructional design models to help us break down the design process into more  manageable units: the ADDIE Model and the Understanding By Design (UBD) Model. Case studies, assessment tasks, instructional websites, videos, and supplemental readings have been carefully selected to model the practical application of the design models.

If you are a secondary or higher education teacher, teaching fully online or looking for a way to supplement your face-to-face instruction with online instruction, you will find one or more sections of this course valuable as you plan, create, and implement an online learning environment. The course is self-paced and designed with the expectation that students will review the content according to their specific requirements. Discussion is a critical component of the instruction and we encourage interaction between students and with the facilitator(s) in the course discussion forum.
