The Summer 2020 Course Design program is a badged sequence of nine modules and workshops designed to support faculty in building their fall courses in various modalities—including fully online, blended, and flipped.
Some of the skills and practices faculty will learn in the program include:
While all Seattle University faculty are welcome to sign up for the program, make use of the resources in the modules, and attend workshops after completing that module’s preliminary work, faculty who sign up for and complete the five required modules and workshops will be awarded a $1000 stipend.
Required for Stipend
1: Flip & Flow (required) In this module you will be introduced to a "blended" approach to instruction and many ideas for activities that can be done either virtually or face-to-face before, during, and after class meetings. By the end of this module, you will be able to create an outline that maps how your course might flow between synchronous and asynchronous activities in a way that suits your course content and its requirements.
2: Deeper Learning (required) Teaching at Seattle University is grounded in cura personalis and the Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm, which means students are asked to grasp the ideas, concepts and transferable skills of the course deeply. In this module you will consider what you want your students to take from your course, what you're afraid of losing in an online modality, and what affordances the online space provides that are consonant with your vision.
3: Framework (required) In this module you will build out your course framework in Canvas. This is an essential step in the course design process; while it requires thought and planning, once you have done it you will find that having an overall blueprint for your course makes it much easier to assemble its discrete elements into a coherent whole. CDLI also provides Canvas templates you can import to provide a foundation for your course framework.
4: First Module (required) Not everyone wants or needs to record their lectures. However, if you think you might this module will introduce you to video basics in Canvas. You’ll learn how to record and share videos in Canvas, create video quizzes, learn best practices for recording over your slides. and even get ideas for how students can make and share their own presentations online.
5: Create Community (required) In this module we will investigate how to create community and foster student engagement at a distance. Upon completion of this module you will be familiar with ideas, strategies, and practices that encourage an engaged and dynamic learning community in your courses. You will also have created a Student Engagement Plan for your course.
Canvas Basics (optional) While CDLI offers Canvas Basics Workshops throughout the year, this module offers a quick tour that covers the main features you will use on a regular basis when teaching with Canvas. We have divided the tour into four sections: Modules, Navigation, Communication, and Grading.
Zoom (optional) This module begins with the basics of using the integrated Zoom tool within Canvas to host and record your classes and office hours. It also covers how to create meeting signups, Zoom polls, group work via breakout rooms, synchronous whiteboard activities, and optimizing PowerPoint for presenting in Zoom.
Video (optional): Not everyone wants or needs to record their lectures. However, if you think you might this module will introduce you to video basics in Canvas. You’ll learn how to record and share videos in Canvas, create video quizzes, learn best practices for recording over your slides. and even get ideas for how students can make and share their own presentations online.
Course Check (optional) It is always a good idea to have a final course check before your course goes live. In this module, you will conduct an initial check using CDLI guidelines. During the workshop you will walk through your course with a colleague who will offer ideas for further improvement.
