In this training you will learn to recognize and create accessible course assets. We will
highlight best practices for creating and formatting electronic documents and
participants will discover where improvements can be made. Rather than addressing
specific concerns as they appear, you will learn how to plan, design, and create flexible
resources from the beginning.

There will be time at the end for Q&A.

Webinar: Strategies for Teaching Your Summer Online Course

Have you previously taught a summer online course at RIT? Will you be teaching your first 5-, 7-, or 10-week online course during the upcoming summer term? If so, this Zoom webinar is for you.

If you have taught an accelerated online course, you probably enjoyed yet perhaps struggled a bit with the concentrated intensity of the experience. But if you’re new to this kind of online teaching, you might feel daunted by the prospect of compressing 15 or 16 weeks of content and learning activities into such a small framework and re-organizing your schedule around your students’ accelerated schedule.

Fortunately for all of us, RIT’s deep collective experience with accelerated teaching and learning, together with hundreds of research studies, offers many effective and flexible strategies for either fine-tuning your current practices or developing new ones with confidence.

During the webinar, we will explore several exiting RIT accelerated courses in depth. Then, we will identify and discuss promising teaching and learning strategies by way of essential questions, as in the following:

  • How do I decide what to keep and what to leave out of?
  • Is collaborative accelerated learning an oxymoron?
  • What assessment methods work best for accelerated courses?

After the webinar, you will receive a follow-up email that will address any unanswered questions, and will also include:

  • Links or attachments to all resources mentioned in the webinar and additional links to relevant resources on the ILI website 
  • Contact information for requesting one-to-one consultations with an ILI instructional designer and/or an academic technologist
  • A schedule of future ILI events

Interpreting services for this webinar are available by request at http://myaccess.rit.edu
