This two-week facilitated online course is intended for a broad audience including faculty, adjunct instructors and instructional designers who wish to learn how to design courses that go beyond lecture, memorization, “teaching to the test” and other forms of “information in and information out.”

Instructors who have used principles of Integrated Course Design provided in this course in the design of their own courses report greater student engagement, more long-term significant learning and increased instructor satisfaction for courses delivered in online, “face-to-face” and “blended/hybrid” formats.

  • Cost: $349 per participant 
  • No pre-requisites
  • Two weeks in length
  • Facilitated
  • Asynchronous
  • 20-25 participants per session

The course requires approximately 8-10 hrs/week to complete all coursework and activities; this may be done evenings and weekends as well as during weekdays.

Faculty who recently took the new course made the following comments about it:

This course is a must for anyone teaching higher education!”

“Overall the course was an excellent one.”

“Your feedback exemplified FiDeLiTy feedback and was spot on in pushing us to think more carefully about what we should be learning and how to apply it to our courses.”

“I appreciate the comments from the facilitators. I wasn't sure what a course facilitator would do but they turned out to be an important part of the course. The course itself is a nice example of the ICD model.”
