Big Ideas Facilitating a Shift Toward Distance Learning

John Spencer Teacher, George Fox University

Learning isn’t like a file that converts between a .doc and a PDF and a Google Doc. We can’t simply substitute new tools and do the same exact activity. But what if we chose a different approach? What if we asked, “How do I transform my course?” rather than “How do I convert it?” The following are a few ideas to consider as you shift toward online / distance learning.

    CAID | A New Approach to Course Design Using OER Content Strategy Cards


    On Friday, April 17 from noon to 1:30 p.m., the Canadian Association of Instructional Designers will be holding an on-line webinar as part of their series on Tools, Tool Development and Instructional Design. This session will introduce participants to a set of content strategy cards to assist in online course design and delivery. These cards were created to help higher education instructors branch away from fill-in-the-blank templates for course planning, to emphasize Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles in content creation, and to encourage educators to embrace a student-centered vision for course design. The webinar is offered free of charge, but you must register by completing a form by April 10 to attend.
