Proposal Title

On-line Courses That Really Work: Designing Engaging, Relevant, and Effective Online Courses

Proposal Abstract

In 1999, Donna Abernathy said, Online learning is not the next big thing; it is the now big thing (Donna J. Abernathy, Training + Development Magazine). Fourteen years later, university professors are still debating the merits of online learning and wondering how to make it relevant and effective. Fortunately, we've learned a lot about what makes online delivery effective for both students and instructors. Attendees will learn successful strategies/practices that will assist in making online learning a satisfying experience for instructors and students, and in doing so creates effective scholarship of teaching and learning environments. We will share what worked and what didn't as we designed online courses, and address the why behind our successes and failures. We will share student work and student reaction to the online format and climate we have created. Join us for a lively discussion of online course delivery that really works!
