In Fall 2018, the SSU Faculty Center is offering an intensive, hands-on semester-long professional development course for online and blended instruction for up to 15 SSU Faculty. The program is co-facilitated by SSU faculty members Dr. Krista Wolcott and Dr. Kristin Denver. Participants will experience the experience of being an online student while simultaneously building a redesigned online or hybrid course to be offered in Winter 2019 or Summer 2019. Participants in this program may be eligible to receive a stipend to complete the course. Bi-weekly sessions will cover best practices with online course design and delivery, and dedicated time is available with Faculty Center staff to help during the redesign process. To participate, please complete the Online Blended & Teaching Excellence Program Application. The program starts August 10, 2018 (online), and the first in-person meeting is August 24, 2018.
