What is Peer Online Course Review?Wednesday, December 7, 2016
12:00pm (pacific time)
In October 2015, the Online Education Initiative published its first Online Course Design Rubric and trained 30 faculty from across the state to use the rubric to evaluate online courses. In the past two years, there have been some amazing results from the course review process, including revisions of courses throughout the state, over 20 workshops introducing and exploring the rubric, 30 additional faculty trained as course reviewers, and a newly revised rubric that promises to be an even more powerful tool. The rubric is turning two, and we’d like to invite you to the party! In this one-hour webinar, we’ll outline the plans for growing Peer Online Course Review, including using the rubric at your campus, training more faculty to be peer online course reviewers (that’s you!), and sharing insights about designing in Canvas that we’ve learned through the course review process.
We’d also be addressing how the rubric benefits all 113 campuses, full-time faculty, part-time faculty, and our students. Though only campuses in the OEI Pilot are eligible for official peer review, the rubric is open and available to all campuses, and both full-time and part-time faculty from all 113 campuses can participate in the free peer online course review training and can become PAID course reviewers.
Please join us for this webinar, and learn more about the newly revised rubric, upcoming rubric trainings, and becoming a peer online course reviewer!
