Designing Online Learning from the Ground Up


This module aims to engage teaching faculty in reflection on the pedagogies/philosophies that inform decision-making as they move curriculum to an online delivery mode. Additionally, the module provides a series of questions and supporting literature arranged according to the Community of Inquiry model, which organizes the teaching and learning environment according to three ‘presences’: social, teaching and cognitive. These questions can be considered by individuals or by teaching teams to guide the creation and revision of online courses and/or programs.
