A select group of Illinois State faculty will show off their newly-designed (or newly re-designed) online courses, Thursday, May 5, and Friday, May 6, at the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology.
Nineteen instructors from across campus will present as part of their final projects for DART Online, a semester-long professional development program that helps faculty members prepare online classes that will be taught starting this summer. Presentations will run from 9 a.m. to noon both days; a complete schedule is available for download.
About DART Online
DART (Design, Align, Refine, and Teach) Online is an intensive, semester-long workshop for faculty interested in designing and teaching high quality online courses. It is taught in a blended format, with about 75 percent of the workshop taking place online and the remainder in face-to-face settings. Successful participants will devote 4–5 hours per week (8–10 hours in the summer) to course work.
Each DART Online cohort is limited to 30 faculty members. Participants must be nominated for this workshop by their department chair or director, and they must be assigned to an online course that is “on the books” to be taught in the next semester (or two). For example, participants accepted into a summer cohort must be scheduled to teach their class in the subsequent fall or spring.
