Building Quality Online Experiences: Program Standards, Training, Design

Thursday, December 12, 2019, 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. CST

Presented by: Nancy McGinley Myers, Lisa Abendroth, Kevin Henderson, Hannah Hedegard, University of St. Thomas

We launched the first cohort in the Online MBA at the University of St. Thomas in Spring 2019. With student experience in mind, we identified three areas where the program needed consistency: program standards, faculty training, and instructional design. Our presentation will focus on each of these areas. First, we will share our process for developing program standards. We will explain why standards are important, how we identified areas for and levels of standardization, and the role program faculty played in this process. We will also share the standards themselves, which cover course design, course delivery, media, and more. Second, we will share some of the ways we onboard our faculty, both to the instructional design process and to online teaching. Faculty are trained in instructional design principles, technology tools, and course facilitation. Third, we will share our proposed course design timeline and lessons learned. One of those lessons includes how to identify courses that may take more or less time to design and build, for example courses that are heavy in math. Along the way, we will provide opportunities for the audience to share their own related experiences in launching online programs. The session will end with time for questions.
