Title: Designing a Course to Save Faculty Time (and Boost Student Engagement) 

 

Description: What faculty member couldn’t use more time? In this session, we will explore ideas for how to add efficiency to our teaching practice, while simultaneously boosting student engagement. I will share recent examples from my teaching practice of ways I’ve designed assessments, structured my online course site, and integrated educational technologies to save myself from a runaway workload. My hope is participants will then engage in a discussion about strategies they have used to find a balance between their workload, quality online teaching, and students’ learning.
