Assessing the Online Classroom: "Where's My Instructor?"

Monday, February 04 | 3:15PM–5:30PM | Plaza Exhibit
Session Type: Professional Development

The session will describe how we used two online classes (English Composition 101 and Psychology 112, with multiple sections over approximately 15 months) as a means for assessing the Distance Education Program as a whole at Goodwin College. The three areas of focus are: a correlation between instructor presence in the virtual classroom and student achievement; the design of assignments and course content specific and targeted to the virtual classroom; and the relationship between user-friendly technology and consistent course design across disciplines and student achievement.

Learning Objectives:
* Develop strategies to aid students who require additional support in the online forum
* Develop noncognitive behaviorial self-assessments and UD-based content in order to create a successful environment for varied learners
* Implement best practices and learning theories for model online classrooms
