TILT Instructional Designers
Description:
An online, facilitated, asynchronous short course focused on using a range of instructional techniques related to active learning, which research on learning has consistently identified as a key factor in academic success. Approaches include checks for understanding, chunking content, designing active learning activities and providing students adequate time to reflect on course content and class materials. The content is designed to support you wherever you are (and whether you teach online, in the classroom or in a hybrid environment) as an active learning instructor. This short course aligns with the Instructional Strategies and Pedagogical Content Knowledge domains of the TILT Teaching Effectiveness Framework. Participant time: 12 hours over 3 weeks. While the course is asynchronous, there are due dates throughout the three weeks to which participants should adhere.
