Faculty Forum on Preparing to Teach Virtual and Hybrid Courses - Summary Video from Dr. Andy Jones
From Andy Jones
Services and resources on campus that can support faculty in thinking about hybrid and online courses:
Consultations with ATS Instructional Designers: [email protected]
ETRA grants to help with costs of media production for course materials
For more about the process of applying to teach a future class in a hybrid or online format, please visit the Academic Senate COCI Policies and Procedures webpage
The Committee has designated two learning activity codes to be used in course approval forms for these courses. The learning activities are Web Virtual Lecture (WVL) and Web Electronic Discussion (WED).
COCI’s definitions: “Courses taught entirely online are referred to as ‘virtual’ courses; while courses that are mixtures of online and in-person contact hours are referred to as ‘hybrid’ courses.”
The Academic Senate announcement shared the rapidly-approaching 30 June deadline for Committee on Courses of Instruction (or COCI) applications. A clarification from a COCI attendee: “Note that the June 30th deadline is for receipt of course forms by COCI, which means that the forms need to be approved by the college by that date.”
Making course materials accessible
SensusAccess - making documents available in a wide range of formats
The Center for Educational Effectiveness (CEE) offers the self-paced, fully-online ACCELERATE Asynchronously program. The program is meant to inform course transformation efforts for faculty and teaching assistants at various stages of the process, including those who are still exploring opportunities to those who are already in the process of redesign and would like more information on inclusive practices.
