March 31st: Quality and Online Learning Lunch ‘n Learn
Offered in collaboration with the Ontario Universities’ Council on eLearning (OUCEL) and Educational Technology Committee (ETC), COED’s next Lunch ‘n Learn is scheduled for March 31st, 12:00-1:00pm and facilitated through the Collaborate UE web conferencing tool.
In 2014 as eCampus Ontario was being considered, the Council of Ontario Universities commissioned several research projects, one of which was a report outlining quality standards for the delivery of high-quality online courses. This project was undertaken jointly by Wilfrid Laurier University, University of Guelph and McMaster University. Data from 40 available quality standards documents was collected from institutions in Ontario, Canada, the U.S. and elsewhere internationally.
One result of the project was that customized rubrics for the development and delivery of online courses were developed. The research projects authors (Sandy Hughes [WLU], Natalie Giesbrecht [U of G] & Kris Knorr [McMaster]) will join us for this Lunch ‘n Learn to briefly outline the project, provide a focus on the results obtained concerning quality standards to be considered for online learning and how this information might be helpful for instructional designers and other online learning practitioners.
Their presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
