Course Design for Online

The CTSI Course Design for Online (CDO) series will introduce the principles of integrated course design and effective online pedagogy to instructors who are developing a new course or revising an existing course to suit an online environment.

In this self-paced, asynchronous mode the material is presented over six modules which model strong online pedagogy. You will learn about effective practices in online learning, and experience what it is like to be a student in that environment.

As you work through the course design process, you will leave this course with the framework and tools for a newly developed or redesigned online course.
