UPDATE: “Course Organization and Social Presence” was a great session! Several engaging speakers challenged sixteen of S&T’s leading instructors to think about their course organization in both face-to-face and online/distance sections. The resulting small group conversation was a mixture of stimulating food for thought and lessons from practical teaching experience across several disciplines. Later, attendees discussed strategies for increasing instructor presence and student engagement through non-traditional means such as video syllabi. Near the end of the session, video creation and sharing was discussed, along with numerous tips for producing videos intended for use in the virtual classroom. 


On October 9th CERTI and EdTech will present “Course Organization and Social Presence” from 3:00PM to 4:30PM in Curtis Laws Wilson Library, Room 204. This eLearning Community of Practice / eFellows presentation will cover how instructors can set clear expectations as they redesign their courses for blended/online learning.

Objectives for this session include:

  • Create a plan for course organization
  • Identify instructor presence
  • Identify how instructor presence might be included in your course

All S&T instructors are welcome to attend!
