eLearn Institute

Ready yourself for teaching online

New to online teaching? This workshop will help you prepare! Learn how to design, facilitate and assess online instruction to provide a quality learning experience for online students.

This online workshop focuses on the pedagogy of online learning and prepares instructors to develop and shape instruction for an online course at Chemeketa. It addresses online course design, development, and related issues. The activities support course development that is aligned with established best practices as exemplified by the Chemeketa Quality Online Instruction initiative (QOI) and Quality Matters standards.

Learner-Centered Outcomes

Workshop activities will allow you to develop and demonstrate the skills necessary to:

  1. Design and structure course materials, instructional activities, and assessments to meet Quality Online Instruction (QOI) guidelines and the adopted course outcomes.
  2. Shape, manage and sustain student interaction and engagement.
  3. Employ a variety of strategies to assess learning and support achievement.
  4. Explore emerging technology and various types of media to support instruction.
  5. Engage in personal reflection and evaluation

NOTE: Completion of this course is required of faculty accepting an assignment to teach an online course at Chemeketa Community College. This course needs to be taken the term prior to delivery of the online course. This workshop is entirely online with no required on-campus participation.

Hybrid Course Development Training

Prepare yourself for teaching blended and hybrid courses

This workshop accompanies your work in the hybrid course development process. The emphasis is on pedagogy and methodology of hybrid instruction, rather on the specific technology or eLearn system tools.  You will examine the instructional design practices for both online and classroom instruction to prepare you for developing and teaching a hybrid course at Chemeketa.
This workshop includes one individual consultation meeting with a Tech Hub faculty member and as many subsequent meetings as are needed.
Note: Completion of this process is required of faculty accepting an assignment to teach a hybrid course for Chemeketa Community College during the term prior to launching the hybrid course.
DPR - Difference, Power and Responsibility

A Difference, Power, and Responsibility (DPR) course provides a framework within which students develop a critical consciousness of issues of difference and power in the United States in order to participate responsibly within a democratic society. General education credit courses with this designation fulfill the cultural literacy requirement of the Associate Arts Transfer (AAOT) degree. However, all programs and college degrees are enriched through the embedding of DPR in the curricula leading to the fulfillment of the college’s strategic intent.
