Evolving an Online Course from a Face to Face Course

One way of developing an online course would be, over a period of time, evolving it from a face to face class.   There are many differences, and a need to have a quantifiable measure of the structure of this course.   We will discuss a possible structure using an NJIT rubric, the technologies in creating materials for this type of course, as well as some issues in evolving from a face to face course to an online course.

Aligning your Moodle Course with Effective Syllabus Design

Whether you teach online or face-to-face and are using Moodle, an effectively designed syllabus should be the cornerstone of any course that guides students through the class. In conjunction with that, the Moodle course page should be a reflection of the syllabus and be designed to connect logically with the course schedule, acting as a supplementary guide through the course for students. This workshop will discuss best practices in syllabus design for both online and face-to-face courses. Participants will receive strategies for aligning their Moodle page with their course syllabus.

Assessing Individual Performance within a Group Setting

There are many reasons for students to be involved in a group.  In courses that involve laboratory, students typically work with one or more other student as lab partners. In a capstone project, which is required by an accreditation agency such as ABET, students work together, both on the project, presentations and reports. In and out of class, students may have group projects or study. Teamwork is good, since it is a skill required by industry, since it happens in industry, and team study has been shown to be an effective way to enhance learning. However, there are aspects of teamwork that we need to consider, and they will be the main focus of this discussion.They are:

  • Do we, or how should we, teach teamwork skills to our students?
  • How do we form these teams?
  • How do we assess performance of individuals within a team setting
