    • 1. Blended by Design: Designing and Developing a Blended Course
      • Veronica Diaz, PhD, [email_address]
      • Jennifer Strickland, PhD, [email_address]
      • Laura Ballard, [email_address]
    • 2. Day 2 Course redesign and engagement
    • 3. Objectives
      • Continue with the module design process
      • Describe instructional design techniques used to organize content
      • Identify course activities suited to the online or classroom environment
      • Review some classroom technologies
      • Explore strategies and techniques to infuse student-student and instructor-student interaction and engagement
    • 4. Why (re)design into blended?
      • Ensures your design facilitates your course
      • Engage students in dynamic and vital communities
      • Students take more responsibility for content and learning
      • Students learn through active participation and inquiry
      • Assessing the Role of Teaching Presence from the Learner Perspective Dr. Randy Garrison, Dr. Norm Vaughan. Available at Blended Learning and Course Redesign in Higher Education & http://net.educause.edu/ir/library/pdf/ELI07159.pdf .
    • 5. 5 Principles of Successful Course Redesign
      • Redesign the whole course.
      • Encourage active learning.
      • Provide students with individualized assistance.
      • Build in ongoing assessment and prompt feedback.
      • Ensure sufficient time on task and monitor student progress.

    • 6. 4 Basic Redesign Steps
      • Identify course content for a module
      • Write learning objectives and develop instructional modules
      • Select course (re) design strategies: determining which strategy is most appropriate for your course
      • Integrate course content activities in classroom and online environments: determining what is best suited in either the online or classroom environment
    • 7. Why Objectives?
      • Clear statement of what students will be able to do when they are finished with an instructional component
      • Focuses on student performance
      • Provides structure: beginning, middle, and end
      • What are the core concepts your students must learn for each module?
        • What do they need to know?
        • What do they need to be able to do?
        • What will they know as a result of my instruction?
    • 8. Support Objectives by
      • Integrating learning technologies
        • Classroom technologies
        • Emerging technologies
        • Online resources
      • Developing diverse assessment techniques
      • Infusing active learning, interaction, and peer engagement
    • 9. Why Modules?
      • Easier to find course content
      • Support consistency
      • Allows students to focus on content rather than form
      • Content becomes manageable
      • Prevents information overload
      • “ 7 +/-2 rule”
