The Course Development Cohort is a comprehensive course spanning 12 weeks beginning with an in person workshop and culminating with a display showcase. The faculty member will come to the cohort process with a specific course in hand. This course may be one previously delivered face–to-face with desires to switch to an online delivery, a current online course which has not yet been credentialed, or a brand-new course with little to no course development completed. Faculty are guided through the process of designing and developing interactive engaging content and assessments for students. Alignment is stressed at each step to ensure everything has a purpose and the course delivers the material the students need as well as allowing the faculty member to personalize the course. This a hands-on course offered through NLI for 12 credits, and participants will be paired with an instructional designer who they will meet with once a week facilitating the work required for completion. All assignments which must be turned in are evidence towards course credentialing and count towards the faculty credentialing as well. The participation, assessment submissions and peer reviews from a participating faculty member provide the quality evidence required to achieve their credentialing. At the end of the 12 week Cohort, the participating faculty member will receive Mastery of Online Instruction Credentialing and the course will go through a comprehensive Quality Assurance leading to it being credentialed for online use.

This offering is for faculty who have already successfully completed an LED facilitated mastery program for online teaching and learning or connected classroom teaching and learning within the last 3 years. This offering allows you to put a course you teach through the VT course quality assurance process with the LED instructional design team. Successful completion over a period of 6 weeks results in your course being credentialed to offer in a distance education format, allows you to be in compliance with the VT Distance Learning policy and be in compliance with the Office of the Registrar course scheduling guidelines.

This offering is primarily virtual, however some face-to-face consultations will take place as the review of your course progresses. Once the session opens, all participants will complete a self-assessment of their course which will be reviewed by an Instructional Designer. Specific information will be submitted for review after that point.

On the day the offering starts everyone will be contacted. If you pass the verification, you will receive instructions on how to proceed. If you do not meet the criteria, you will receive instructions on the various options available to you to complete an LED facilitated mastery program.

Any Learning Management System (LMS) can be daunting if you haven’t used it before, or if you’re populating a new site from scratch. In this session, LED Instructional Designers will show you a few templates we offer to help provide a quality-assured platform and structure for your content. We have options ranging from a basic platform for face-to-face delivery all the way to much more thorough templates for fully online courses, and if you choose, you will leave the session with your own template you can begin populating whenever you like.
