LSU’s archival studies program utilizes a unique online structure whereby students complete one course at a time in accelerated 7-week terms. The online courses follow a scaffolded structure with all course content and activities aligning with module, course, and programmatic learning objectives. Additionally, the course designs follow a similar structure which provides students with a consistent look and feel throughout the program.
This two-hour workshop will provide participants with an overview of the approach utilized by the LSU Online program and is divided into four sections. Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:
- Compose measurable and observable course outcomes module-level learning objectives and align course content with them
- Develop an assessment strategy that includes both formative and summative assessments
- Curate course content following copyright and accessibility rules.
- Create learning objects and activities
Section 1: Designing your online course: This section introduces the use of backwards design model whereby we start with the end results of a course in mind, specifically the course outcomes, to help stay focused on prioritizing course content.
Section 2: Curating content and learning resources: The resources in this section are designed to aid you in curating and creating learning resources for your course and reviews rules and guidelines including copyright and accessibility.
Section 3: Using a course template: This section will review the how to create a consistent look and feel for the students and provide an overview of the LSU Online template.
Section 4: Teaching your online course: This section provides strategies for how to engage with students through regular and substantive interactions (RSI) and your instructor presence, as well as resources to help you prepare for the start of the term.
