The purpose of the webinar is to provide relevant tools, knowledge, and skills on Instructional Design effective practices for faculty and practitioners to apply to online and blended course design and development. This information, as aligned within the Community of Inquiry (CoI) Framework, can assist faculty, course designers, instructional designers, and other practitioners in increasing engagement, learning, and success in the classroom. The audience will learn specific and fundamental tools and effective practices from Instructional Design that can positively impact the creation and development of an online course, strengthen the effectiveness of instructional delivery, and increase the opportunities for deeper student engagement and success. Additionally, participants will examine how the information can be the piece missing from the transition from theory to practice and utilize the examples for filling the gap between the two realms. Further, the audience will be able to take a virtual swag bag of documents from the webinar for future use.

 This Research Symposium will discuss research-based solutions to one of the most daunting problems in American higher education – the continued loss of graduates in STEM areas. How do we counter the precipitous drop in STEM enrollments and how does the research being conducted enable STEM online programs to educate the workforce needed in STEM?

The panelists of this Research Symposium are members of the HP Catalyst Initiative, sponsored by Hewlett Packard. This network of educators explores new innovative approaches to teaching science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) courses online. These experts are also members of the Multi-Versity Consortium, led by Sloan-C and constructed around the idea of uplifting online STEM education worldwide.

This webinar demonstrates an overview of Google Documents used for word processing, spreadsheet applications, presentations, surveys and calendars as well as video and text chatting. Participants will receive a step-by-step guide to help get started as well as gain ideas for classroom and departmental collaboration

We are professionals with demanding schedules. Technology is available to assist but may complicate our communication as we struggle with multiple attempts sending and receiving documents. We re-read redundant messages, and await responses from others. Collaboration has become important not only in the office environment but as a part of student learning. Changing paradigms in education suggest students learn best when partnered with others.

University of the People (UoPeople) - a non-profit, tuition-free, online academic institution – aims at building a model capable of opening access to higher education for those currently constrained due to financial, geographic or societal restraints. By amalgamating open source technology, open educational resources, peer-to-peer learning and the goodwill of qualified volunteers, UoPeople is able to provide the opportunity of higher education for deprived individuals. Additionally, UoPeople’s model is capable of impacting higher education globally as parts of this model are adopted or replicated within universities and governments – thus scaling down the overall cost of higher education.
