Campus Workshops

General Workshop on “Integrated Course Design”: These individuals frequently offer workshops on college or university campuses.  These range in length from ½ day, 1 day, to 2 days long.  The longer the workshop, the more workshop participants can get into actually make design decisions for their own courses.

These workshops are the most cost effective because the cost is amortized among many people from that campus.

Workshop Specifically on “Designing Online and Hybrid Courses”: Two of the Associates have put together a workshop on this topic.  It can be done as a 1-day or 2-day workshop.

The first half is about the basic principles of Integrated Course Design; the second half is about the additional issues and tools that are needed for courses that will operate completely or partially in an online environment.
