Four live class meetings, two sessions per week, 60 minutes each.
Remaining work is asynchronous.
This final course in the sequence focuses on course and lesson planning for primarily synchronous virtual courses or blended classes (e.g., some synchronous and some live class meetings). It includes:
- Two 60-minute class sessions on syllabus design, with an emphasis on defining learning outcomes and effectively distributing them throughout class meetings (e.g., start with foundational material first; plan for synthesis days; etc.).
- Two 60-minute class sessions on lesson plan design for virtual classrooms.
- Participants work asynchronously (self-paced) to complete a syllabus and two lesson plans. Instructors provide feedback on draft work products, and they are available for consultation in office hours.
- After receiving feedback, participants choose one lesson plan, teach it on a virtual platform of their choosing and record the teaching session for submission as a final assignment.
Prerequisites: Courses 1 and 2.
Participation Fee: $450 individual. $350 per person group rate for a group of 10. $300 per person group rate for a group of 30.
