Online & Blended Learning


Based on best practices and sound pedagogy, the immersive institutes for online and blended course development help faculty develop quality online or blended courses that challenge and engage student learners. During the institutes, faculty participants consult with instructional designers, other staff from Libraries and Educational Technologies (LET) who have expertise and experience with instructional design and learning theory, and experienced peer mentors to develop strategies for teaching and learning in an online or blended environment, design learning activities and select appropriate instructional technologies, which all support the instructional objectives of the course. In addition, the LET provides production support for the design and development of online and blended courses.

Innovation Services Model for Course Design and Redesign for Institutes

Based on three instructional design models (ADDIE, ASSURE and Kemp), the CIT’s approach to course design in the institutes is customized based on the course objectives,  faculty teaching needs and student learning needs. The CIT’s institute and course design models are evidence based from research/literature, faculty development assessment and feedback from past participants support our successful approach to course redesign. The CIT’s models for faculty development and course design are sustainable and provide ongoing support to faculty. Ongoing support includes consultation and content production.
