Where do we go from here? November Reading Week will be an opportunity to leverage your experience and begin thinking about redesigning the courses that will go live online for the first time in Spring 2021. If you were unable to participate in one of the earlier Sailings of this course-design project over the past summer, we invite you to join us now for an updated version of the experience.Participants in this “compressed” learning project will join a cohort of 20 VIU faculty who are prepping their courses for a fully online delivery, using the mediated learning tools available to VIU faculty: VIULearn, Zoom, VIUTube, VIUBlogs, Personal Capture, among others.

Project outcomes. Participants who complete this project will:

  • Reframe their course for an alternative delivery format, with asynchronous and synchronous components
  • Develop an assessment plan (both formative and summative) appropriate for teaching and learning in a non-face-to-face environment
  • Design learning activities and sequences that support student enthusiasm for learning in non-face-to-face courses
