Online Learning Pedagogy II is an OPTIONAL four
week online course covering topics and materials that builds upon
the teaching techniques covered in the Pedagogy 1 course.
This course content deals with pedagogical methods of engaging your
students in your online course and empowering them to be
self-sufficient. Therefore, participants should have
satisfactorily completed the Pedagogy 1 course, and have taught a
fully online course while working with an assigned DL faculty
mentor, before enrolling in this course.
This course is also conducted entirely online and requires
approximately three to four hours per week of online participation.
Thus the dates and times you want to log in and participate each
week are up to you. Faculty members who successfully complete this
optional course and then work with an assigned DL faculty mentor to
demonstrate the use of skills learned, to teach a fully online
class will become eligible for a one-time stipend of
$500. Note, your fully online class used to earn this
$500 stipend must be a different class than the
one used to earn the Pedagogy 1 stipend.
At successful conclusion of this course you will receive a
certificate of completion. Topics include:
- Course design and navigation, including time management
strategies to lighten your workload
- Methods of presenting interactive course content to your
- Facilitating and enhancing the use of the boards to promote
student participation, enabling them to be less dependent on you to
keep discussions alive
- Methods of creating podcasts, video presentations, blogs,
journals and wikis
- Methods of presenting content for slower vs. faster connection
speeds at either beginner or advanced technical levels
Satisfactory completion of Pedagogy I is the pre-requisite for

announced as they are scheduled. For additional information,
