Though the Department of Education has temporarily waived or relaxed some of its standards regarding the delivery of online education, it is expected that these standards will come back into effect after the pandemic passes. In order to prepare for this, CDLI will resume offering its Course Design program this winter.
The Course Design program is a series of workshops in which faculty design and build online and hybrid courses that both reflect Seattle University’s Jesuit approach to education and meet federal and regional accrediting standards. Beginning with the Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm, participants use various design methodologies to uncover deep course objectives, address the unique needs of their students, and deploy the digital learning technologies that help support a community of learners.
Faculty typically take an additional quarter to complete their courses before submitting them for review, so participants should plan to spend at least two quarters (or six months) on the course development process.
A $3,000 stipend is available for faculty members who successfully complete the program and develop a course which passes CDLI’s course review by June 30, 2021.
