Strategies for Effective Online Learning

Hawkeye Community College is committed to providing a quality experience for the online student and recognizes that course development and delivery requires a level of organization and preparedness different than the traditional classroom. For online instructors, and increasingly for face-to-face instructors supplementing their courses with online resources, it is important to pay careful attention to course organization and design that improves student engagement, learning, and retention. During this short course, participants will experience online learning from the student perspective and examine learner-centered practices for designing virtual environments.

This workshop is open to all faculty and fulfills one of the requirements for Hawkeye's two-year faculty induction program. Each offering is moderated online/asynchronously for three weeks. No face-to-face meetings are required.

Register for the February 8 session to take this February 8-March 1, 2017.
