How do you engage academic staff in online learning?

This session will present our experience of a 5 week online professional development course that achieved over 500 discussion posts with only 15 participants collaborating to develop their online teaching knowledge and skills

The course was based on the 5 stage model and used innovative technology to engage participants. The presentation will demonstrate how an established course was contextualised for Swinburne. It will showcase the course and how it was designed and delivered to demonstrate an approach for effectively utilization of Blackboard and other technologies to development staff capacity.
