Accelerated online courses are becoming increasingly common throughout higher education. Equivalent to semester-length classes in learning outcomes and time on task, accelerated online courses are currently being offered at RIT, or will soon be offered, in 3-, 5-, 6-, 8-, and 10-week formats. Research suggests that accelerated course formats in any mode (online, blended, or face-to-face) can be effective alternatives to traditional formats. However, accelerated courses need to be designed and taught differently in order to achieve the equivalent outcomes.

During this 90-minute workshop, you’ll have opportunities to:

  • Explore research findings and best practices from the literature on accelerated course design and teaching
  • Consider the unique characteristics of effective accelerated online learning environments
  • Design one accelerated online learning activity that will excite and motivate your students
  • Exchange ideas with your colleagues on your accelerated online course plan
  • Identify RIT services and resources related to accelerated online course development

Registration Information: This workshop is open to all RIT faculty (adjunct as well as full-time) who are teaching an accelerated online course during Summer 2014 or AY2014-15. Seating is limited and advance registration is required.

To request interpreting services, go to: http://myaccess.rit.edu/.
