  1. 1. MODERNIZING FACULTY DEVELOPMENT FOR ONLINE LEARNING PROGRAMS Carrie Levin, Michele Gribbins, Emily Boles Center for Online Learning, Research and Service University of Illinois Springfield
  2. 2. LET’S START WITH A POLL! How do you make sure that online faculty are adhering to good online course design principles? Text 222057 and your message to 22333
  3. 3. BACKGROUND: THE UIS MODEL FOR ONLINE LEARNING
  4. 4. BACKGROUND: THE UIS MODEL Offering online courses since 1998  Online programs requested and developed by the academic department and approved through the same college and governance structures used by f2f programs  Same full-time tenured and tenure-track faculty  Faculty supported by COLRS  Advanced data driven decision making processes have been developed to promote best practices  Online program coordinators essential to support fully-online students  Class sizes small. Most online courses capped at 20 (but this varies)  Online courses developed as part of degree granting programs rather than stand alone courses
  5. 5. Online and Blended Class Enrollments at UIS For the entire academic year – fall 2012 and spring/summer 2013: Online classes were taken by students in 48 states (not ND or VT) and 88 Illinois counties Total annual credit hours in online classes 45,260 43.3% of all credit hours were in online classes at UIS 75.8% of all UIS students took at least one online class 39.5% of all UIS students took only online classes That generated $1,131,500 in course fees ($25/credit hour)
  6. 6. UIS ONLINE DEGREES AND CERTIFICATES
  7. 7. THE CENTER FOR ONLINE LEARNING, RESEARCH AND SERVICE Supports faculty members in conceptualizing, developing, deploying and assessing online classes  Sound pedagogy is the foundation upon which we select/support technology  Faculty Research Fellows  Major Grants  MOOC Development  COLRS Blog: https://blogs.uis.edu/colrs  Faculty Development Workshops  Our website: http://www.uis.edu/colrs/
  8. 8. SO… HOW’S IT WORKING? Generally, quite well. But there are concerns. Namely: Some faculty do not attend training workshops Faculty not always aware of support services available Faculty overwhelmed with teaching responsibilities Some faculty see our unit as “Blackboard Support Helpdesk” rather than online pedagogy experts With faculty creating their own courses, not all follow good course design guidelines
  9. 9. “PREPARING TO TEACH ONLINE” 3 Courses designed to enrich faculty understanding of good online pedagogy
  10. 10. CERTIFICATE PROGRAM FOR UIS FACULTY: PREPARING TO TEACH ONLINE UIS faculty will be recognized for innovation in online teaching and implementing best-practices Faculty enrolled in self-paced training modules Upon completion of modules, faculty awarded virtual badge which can be displayed in their courses, syllabi, faculty and departmental pages and other digital locations COLRS will maintain a listing on our website and submit the information for the faculty member’s permanent file Participation in the course allows COLRS staff members to engage the faculty member in a discussion on additional ways to improve or update the course
  11. 11. PREPARING TO TEACH ONLINE: COURSE DESCRIPTION “Preparing to Teach Online” will provide a common foundation for all online instructors at the University of Illinois Springfield. Per the provost, this course will contain a two-hour module required for all instructors teaching online courses. Required Module for all faculty (2 hours) This required module will contain a brief introduction to effective practices for online teaching, strategies for increasing student evaluation response rates, tips for documenting online teaching performance and improvement, and tactics for managing workload
  12. 12. FACULTY SELF-ASSESSMENT Faculty Self-Assessment After the required introduction, faculty will have the opportunity to take an online teaching readiness self-assessment (hoping this will help prevent our experienced instructors from being offended). This assessment will place them into either PTO I (introductory) or PTO II (advanced). Link to Survey
  13. 13. COURSE I: 8-10 HOURS The course will focus on basic strategies for addressing four areas central to instructor success in online teaching: communication & presence, assessment & evaluation, pedagogy, and technology.
  14. 14. COURSE II: 8 – 10 HOURS The course will focus on advanced strategies for addressing four areas central to instructor success in online teaching: communication & presence, assessment & evaluation, pedagogy, and technology
  15. 15. E-PORTFOLIO AND RECOGNITION ePortfolio The ePortfolio will be developed through Course I and Course II. It will be an extensive resource to support the faculty member’s online teaching and also document for use in the promotion and tenure process. Recognition When faculty successfully complete (80% or better) Course I, Course II, and the ePortfolio, a letter will be sent to the provost’s office and digital badges will be earned for display on professional websites. Custom course banners featuring the badge of completion for this training series will also be provided to faculty.
