Online Pedagogy Community of Practice
With Scott Millspaugh, Interim Assistant Director of Learning Experience Design in the Office of Academic and Learning Innovation; Karen Crouch, Instructional Design and Technology Consultant, ASSETT; and Preston Cumming, Professional Development Lead, CTL
We are continuously finding ways to build community in our online courses. How about doing so with our fellow online education practitioners and professionals? The Online Pedagogy Community of Practice (OCoP) is not just another workshop or a tool demonstration. It is a community of like minded folks invested in surfacing shared concerns, identifying mutual goals, and building trusted relationships. As CU Boulder Online convenes a campus-wide community of practice, we want your voice in the mix.
Jan. 27 - Remote and Online Teaching: Where We've Been and Where We're Going
Multiple modalities of teaching and learning have been a reality in higher education for decades. From early models of distance learning focused on VHS-recorded lectures to the wide-scale adoption of LMSs in the 2000s, teaching and learning has moved rapidly away from the traditional models of university education established in the 11th and 12th centuries in Europe. The challenges presented by COVID-19 have eroded those models even further and led educators to grapple with the permeability between in-person, online, remote, and hybrid pedagogy.
Our next OCoP event will explore this permeability and invite participants to share resources that have helped them through the challenges we continue to face as the pandemic takes its course. We will explore the history and future implications of blended learning environments and invite participants to discuss their own challenges and successes when mixing in-person, remote, online, and hybrid models for teaching and learning.
Before January 27th, the OCoP planning committee asks that you contribute resources that have helped you address the challenges of multi-modal teaching and learning. On this shared Google Doc, please add one resource to one of the categories we've defined, or feel free to add other categories as needed. We're going to use this document to structure our conversation at the event.
