Course Implementation


Is the course blended or fully online?

The course could be in-person, Blended, or fully online.

Is this student-centered or teacher-led?

The course is student centered and relies on the student to provide choice, Ownership, and voice for their own authentic learning.

Where does the Overview/Introduction/Start Here module fit into the overall course map or design?

The Overview/Introduction/Start Here module is presented as the first module. It provides the goals and outcomes as well as instructor intro and contact information as well as a list of links to all referenced resources in the course.

What is the scope or range of the instructor’s role (i.e. Presenter, Facilitator, Coach, Mentor)?

The instructors role is to be a coach and mentor to help advise in students choices and decisions.

How are you introducing the course and yourself and how are you building the learning community?

My introduction is in the start here section of the course. The classroom app provides a mechanism for students to share their progress and ask questions. Additionally, Group meeting’s, messaging and document collaboration directed in the weekly modules provides access to community and gives students the ability to share their voice to the learning.

How will you address the infrastructure, system, and support needs and issues the learner may face?

Each module includes support guides for all apps used. The Google classroom system provides a help system. I am available for consultation on issues.

How is your instructional design approach realized in the modules?

The weekly modules activities and assessments align to the learning goals outlined in the provided 3-column table adhering to constructive learning.
