Short Description

This presentation discusses how distance learning techniques can be applied for a positive impact in campus based courses. The presenter will share stories from his experience teaching online and on campus and provide learning management system demonstrations to explain how the application of online instructional design skills in courses delivered on campus enhances their effectiveness. Examples of resulting improvements, knowledge bases and enhanced student and instructor experiences are also discussed.

Abstract

Thinking through every aspect of an online course’s instructional design is crucial for effective online teaching. This case study examines the impact that applying online instructional design techniques has on campus based course delivery. In it, an instructor with both online and on campus teaching experience shares the positive impact of applying online instructional design techniques in his campus based courses. Using anecdotes, supporting research, examples and demonstrations he discusses using the learning management system (LMS) as a course wizard and the impact this has on syllabus development, the controversy and goodwill surrounding the recording of video lectures and student feedback, developing online quizzes and test banks for reuse while reducing cheating, using online discussions to foster a flipped classroom for increased interaction in class with homework that leverages videos outside of class and implementing automated rubrics for increased clarity and expectation setting. The benefits of providing enhanced structure for students and productivity for instructors are revealed and several myths are debunked. Finally, using the LMS as an enhanced course knowledge base is explored and key takeaways are reviewed.
