    Operating Standards Operating Standards Presentation Transcript

    • Operating Standards: A Definition
      • Procedures or guidelines to be followed in carrying out a given operation or in a given situation.
          • Source: The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language
    • What are effective applications of operating standards in online learning?
    • Operating standards can be created by students to support community building and teambuilding.
    • Created by Students
      • Created by teams at the start of the course, operating standards guide how team members work together throughout the course.
      • Examples of Team Operating Standards:
      • (1) Develop camaraderie to have fun while working.
      • (2) Ensure that all team members understand key concepts.
      • (3) Check in at the start of the week to solidify individual responsibilities.
      • (4) Ask for clarification in team discussions as needed.
    • Created by Students
      • Created by the whole class community, they guide how students communicate with one another. They help to p promote high quality contributions and avoid potential conflict among learners online.
      • Examples of Community Operating Standards:
      • Contribute substantive postings.
      • Try to help one another develop new understandings.
      • Communicate with a positive tone (re-read posts before hitting “submit”).
      • Give one another the benefit of the doubt and assume everyone has good intentions.
    • Operating standards can be created by instructors to guide instruction and support virtual classroom management.
    • Created by Instructors
      • Created to be shared with students, Operating Standards provide expectations and protocols for communication, assignment submission and feedback, technical support troubleshooting, and other course procedures.
      • Examples of Course Protocols/ Operating Standards for Students:
      • Assignments must be submitted to the Gradebook by the designated due date.
      • It is expected that you log into the Electronic Learning Community at least three times per week.
      • During our synchronous class sessions, all technical support issues should be posted in the tech support chat pod.
      • When you send an e-mail message to the facilitator or to another participant in the course, include the title of the course in the subject field.
    • Created by Instructors
      • Created while preparing to teach online, Operating Standards provide a set of understandings and processes that guide teaching practice.
      • Examples of Operating Standards for Effective Online Teaching:
      • I will summarize discussions at the midpoint and end of each week to promote a better understanding of course content.
      • I will provide feedback to assignments within one week after the due date.
      • I will post an announcement at least twice a week to promote course engagement.
    • Please consider, how might you use operating standards in your online course? Johns Hopkins University School of Education, Center for Technology in Education ©2010
