A presentation by Dr. Selia Karsten
June 2, 2004
This presentation highlights teaching strategies for developing and maintaining hybrid courses in the Marketing and Marketing Administration programs in the School of Marketing and eBusiness at Seneca College.
Who is Involved?
Professors Selia Karsten and Tim Richardson have been working with course home pages, online notes and linked resources since the mid-nineties. In delivering courses using a hybrid approach, they have faced major challenges. Ways of working will be demonstrated. Success stories will hopefully inspire faculty to move their courses further along with integration of their curriculum to web-based teaching and learning materials.
What the presentation is about:
We'd like to help you think about how you can maximize the use of online resources to enhance your teaching expertise and your course delivery methods. Creating an efficient course home page can take a variety of shapes. It can be as easy as using a simple web editor or writing basic HTML code. How you organize the page, what resources you link to, and how frequently you update your files are among the management skills you can model for your learners. Coming up with a system of staying organized and on track is bedrock.
Think about your answers to the following
What's on your computer? Do you have what you need?
Are you interested in creating and maintaining a home page for your courses?
How do you conduct a needs assessment to determine the ability of students to access online content?
How do you back up important information? What guides you in revising your online resources?
What are the essentials in using a learning management system like BlackBoard to expedite your courses?
How do you use e-mail? What about keeping virtual office hours?
What are keys to dealing with information management simply and efficiently?
We'll share tips about successful ways
of getting your computer skills in shape and finding the technical support
you need. We are both pioneers in a new age of teaching and learning and
these are among the practical, no-nonsense ideas we'll bring, hoping to
add to our arsenal in a discussion about what you are finding works best
