Do you need to know how to set up an online course? Would you like to improve an online course that you
have already taught? This workshop is for you! Hands-on experience for everything you need to know to put a
course online and teach it well.

Co-taught by a successful instructional designer and two experienced online educators from the USC College of Nursing,
this class is for instructors with no or limited prior experience with online teaching, academic program administrators, and anyone interested in online teaching and learning.

We are proud that U.S. News and World Report counts our online graduate programs among the nation’s best. In this workshop, we will take an evidence-based approach to online teaching and share with you the strategies that have proven to be successful both in our college and at large.

This workshop explores the basic components of online course delivery. Participants will learn how to:
◆ Adapt existing course documents for online presentation;
◆ Build an attractive and easy-to-navigate course site in a course management system;
◆ Create engaging online activities;
◆ Communicate with large groups of online students in an efficient and effective manner;
◆ Assess student learning in multiple formats.
