Classroom Technology - A Hands-On Tour
 
The lecterns in each classroom on campus contain foundational instructional technologies. This workshop will explain and demonstrate how to utilize this equipment to further your pedagogy. Key functionality to be demonstrated includes computer, projector, document camera, and sound equipment utilization. How to troubleshoot minor problems and seek help for malfunctioning lectern equipment will also be discussed. Learners will also have the opportunity to interact with the equipment for themselves at the end of the session and ask questions.


Join EIU’S Instructional Support Specialists Jeff Cranstoun, Melba Goliday, and David Smith for this up close demonstration of the classroom technology across campus. Participants will meet at the CSI Active Learning Classroom in Booth Library and join their college-specific ISS for a tour of classrooms in their teaching areas and colleges.

Building Inclusive and Equitable Syllabi and Assignments
 
As we prepare for the next academic year, many of us reflect on our past practices in an effort to make improvements that would enhance student learning and experiences in our classrooms. For many, the syllabus, that welcome email or the D2L news feed will be your students’ first introduction to our course. As academicians we can have blind spots in our practices that create micro-barriers to our students’ success. In this workshop, we will learn what it means to be inclusive and equitable, we will learn about inclusive and equitable pedagogy, and what they look like in the syllabus and various assignments. Example syllabi and assignments are welcome. This workshop is being offered in a hybrid format. You can join in person in 1220 Booth Library, the CSI Active Learning Classroom, or via join Zoom. The Zoom link will be sent in the registration confirmation email. This workshop is part of the 2022 FDIC August Institute, August 8-12, 2022.

Online Course Development Institute (OCDi)
 

The Online Course Development Institute was established to provide faculty at Eastern Illinois University a professional development opportunity to experience best practices in online teaching and guidance in quality online course development. The OCDi is for EIU faculty developing or redesigning an online course and teaching online for the first time at EIU.

GOAL

The goal of the OCDi is to provide faculty with suggested guidelines and training necessary to develop a quality online course which will enhance the online teaching and learning experiences of both faculty and students and encourage effective engagement and collaboration in the online environment.

EIU ONLINE COURSE POLICY

“All instructors of online courses must submit proof of having completed the Online Course Development Institute (OCDI), Illinois Online Network’s “Master Online Teacher" certificate or another documented and equivalent training activity before teaching the courses/sections for the first time.” The EIU Online Course Policy can be found at https://www.eiu.edu/eiucaa/OnlineCoursePolicy.pdf.

OBJECTIVES

  1. The participant will be able to develop a course for online delivery using standards presented for effective online course design.
  2. The participant will be able incorporate strategies for effective online teaching and learning.
  3. The participant will be able to integrate technologies that will engage students in the online environment and align with the course objectives.
  4. The participant will be able to meet the university requirement for teaching an online course.

TOPICS

The course contains eight content modules. The topics of each module are listed below.

  1. Overview, Introduction, and Learner Support
  2. Learning Objectives and Instructional Design
  3. Accessibility and Usability
  4. Instructional Materials
  5. Course Activities and Learner Interaction
  6. Assessment and Measurement
  7. Course Technology
  8. Online Teaching Strategies

FORMAT

The OCDi Training Course is an online, self-directed course. Participants work through the content modules at their own pace. However, the facilitator is always available to answer questions, provide consultation, review assignments, and post grades and feedback. The course includes online activities, online resources, technology tutorials, and an online synchronous discussion scheduled at the participant’s convenience.

TIME REQUIREMENT

I am often asked the time requirement necessary to complete the OCDi training which is a difficult question to answer. The training originated as an 8-week face-to-face course followed by the completion of the online course development. The same course components remain but the course has been developed into a self-directed, online course. Because the course is self-paced, completion time often depends on many factors including the motivation, technology skills, experience, and time demands of the person completing the training.
