Introducing Online & Hybrid Faculty Learning Communities

This post highlights a special invitation from Kim Kenward, Instructional Designer, in IDeL:

Join our GVSU Online & Hybrid Faculty Learning Community!

cqqdn0eu8aeermsWhether you’ve been teaching online or hybrid courses for several years, or just getting ready to start your first semester teaching hybrid or online, all levels of expertise are welcome to join the “Online and Hybrid Learning Community”.    We have three learning communities (one per campus) located at the Allendale, CHS or Pew campuses.  We meet once a month for 90 minutes (September through April) during the fall/winter semester(s) to:

  • Support new and experienced online/hybrid faculty through dialogue and samples
  • Explore best practices associated with online/hybrid teaching and learning
  • Identify emerging technological needs to support online teaching and learning
  • Share collective expertise across disciplines

Sponsored by IDeL (Instructional Design for eLearning) and the Pew Faculty Teaching & Learning Center, we hope these learning communities will provide a venue for faculty-led dialogue and to share collective expertise regarding online/hybrid instruction at GVSU.
