This course assumes that you have already thought through addressing the learning principles and standards required by your institution. If necessary, complete that work on your course too.
As is true in face to face courses, there are many possibilities for learning experiences online. Which will you include in your course? Consider this week how you prefer to teach face to face; and explore options and new strategies for online learning experiences.
1. Construct the learning experiences for at least one module/week of your course and post for feedback. Write the instructions necessary for your students to complete the experiences. Include any links necessary. See the Resources section for materials to help create many kinds of learning activities online.
2. Update your syllabus to include information related to the learning experiences: i.e. a rationale for interaction, a description of each type of learning activity, rationale for faith integration online, description of module or weekly template and required work, etc. Include also the template and timeline of topics (i.e. your template), and a calendar of activities/assignments (with as much as you have so far).
Then post (Word, HTML or PDF) your module and updated syllabus in the Discussion Board for feedback (one message for each). Share in your posting how your updated syllabus and/or new module materials address the integration of faith and learning in your course.
Timing: Work on Course Components Monday and Tuesday and post your work by Wednesday night each week. Thursday through Sunday we will participate in Community Feedback.
