Best Practices in Online Courses Webinar
Feb 18 @ 9:30 am – 10:30 am

Developing and delivering a great online course is a challenge with constantly evolving technology and industry standards, so the Online Course Quality Task Force worked hard last fall to do the research for you! This team of CMC faculty and staff established a set of standards and best practices to ensure CMC online courses are consistently high-quality learning environments that facilitate active learning and a positive learning and teaching environment. Join Karen Kaemmerling, Instructional Chair for Online Learning, to discuss online course design and delivery standards established by the CMC Online Course Quality Task Force. This live one hour webinar will encourage open discussion, questions, and feedback about the recommendations of the committee.

This webinar will be held via a Collaborate web conference. The link to join the webinar will be sent via email to registered participants; you can also contact the webinar’s instructor for the link.
