Beyond Online Course Design: Teaching and Peer Evaluating


question mark iconWhat

The difference between quality online course design and quality online teaching is a crucial and sometimes neglected nuance.

In this session, we build on prior knowledge of designing quality online courses and dive into what it means to be a great online instructor. We will share evidence-based core teaching behaviors, and use those behaviors as a foundation to build a useful tool for completing online course peer reviews. This will provide an opportunity to discuss the impact of quality online teaching reviews for you and your discipline. We will discuss your needs as an instructor, along with the unique aspects of being part of your specific department, as we aim to build a flexible evaluation tool in the future.

Participants in this workshop will:

  • Learn the core teaching behaviors of quality online learning (Tobin, Mandernach, & Taylor, 2015)
  • Understand the basics of online peer evaluation
  • Help build an online evaluation rubric that is a flexible and useful option within our university at the departmental and personal level
