Full course description

@ONE and OEI are launching a new program to help college teams design, develop, and deploy campus-based peer review and mentoring around online course design. The program begins with our three week course, Building a Local POCR Process. In this course, you and others from your college will discover how to build a process that fits the local needs of your faculty and campus culture, while also connecting to the broader guidelines for course review set forth by Academic Senate and employed by the Online Education Initiative.

During the course, participants will:

  • Identify strategies for building a faculty community of practice around course design and online pedagogy;
  • Connect with resources for building and maintaining a local program, including your colleagues from other campuses who can share best practices and lessons learned.
  • Identify the elements of a course review process that will align local practices to OEI and statewide standards:
    • Review of courses is peer-to-peer, done by trained faculty reviewers.
    • Uses the OEI Course Design Rubric.
    • Reviewers are trained to use the Rubric through the @ONE online, three-week course: Peer Online Course Review
    • Participants engage in regular norming and training on the use of the rubric and best practices in online course design.

This course requires a team of participants from your campus (we suggest at least a team of three). Participants will meet once a week for three weeks, with activities in between sessions that will support the development of your college’s program. Synchronous online meetings will take place on April 11, 18, and 25 from 12:00-1:00 pm.
