I will be talking about the history, development, planning and outcomes of a first-time Professional Development workshop for online instructors at Continuing Studies at the University of Victoria. The creation of this workshop was complicated because all online instructors at Continuing Studies are contracted to develop and/or teaching online courses in several different program units, and since they are not continuing appointments at UVic, they are not eligible for professional development opportunities at UVic. We created this workshop first to address this need, and second, to open a doorway to peer support among instructors hired by several different program units – instructors who don’t normally get the chance to interact with each other, including many instructors who have little or no experience teaching (online or otherwise).
In addition to discussing what we have done here at Continuing Studies, UVic, I will be inviting input and discussion from the participants at the session on what others have tried with regards to professional development for online instructors (or experiences they may have had as participants in ProD sessions), as well as challenges they have faced trying to develop and run such workshops.
