Best Practices: Theoretical Foundations of Online Course (Course 2)
Marianne Bauer and Elaine Chen
This short course lays out a philosophical landscape in an online learning environment. It introduces simple and practical pedagogical tips for online course design and facilitation with brief sketches of the key constructivist learning theories. Participants of this course will be encouraged to discuss course-design ideas inspired by a theorist and to apply best practices for teaching online using their Canvas sandbox. You might be interested in this course if: • You have some experience as an online developer/student/instructor. • You have some experience with a learning management system. • You’re interested in learning theoretical foundations for online courses. This class is part of a series of TILT short courses on best practices for designing, developing and facilitating online courses. The courses can be taken in any order. However, if you don’t have much experience designing and developing an online course, hands-on experience in a learning management system or previous online teaching experience, you may want to take Course 1 before taking Course 3 or Course 4.
