I completed the Module Making Workshop with the Department of Online Education at Touro University.
In order to teach online courses as an instructor at Touro College,I wanted to learn more about how to elevate setting up course modules for your online course(s). The Module Making Workshop is a 4-week course guided me through the essential components of creating an online module including creating measurable learning objectives, adding critical design elements (e.g., headers), and creating a logical flow to course content.
The components of this workshop adhere to the standards outlined in Touro’s Rubric for Online Education, which is the instrument used to evaluate the quality of online courses at Touro.
AI and intelligent systems are positioned to become change agents in education through ushering in profound changes in institutional administrative and teaching functions, systemic strategic planning, and program planning. Post-pandemic, the explosive growth of fully-accredited online degrees has also reached teacher education programs. However, any online teacher education program needs alternative pathways to support teacher candidates in their online journey at Touro University and towards teacher certification. This lightening talk focused on alternative meeting, teaching and advising spaces in metaverses such as Agora World. Meeting in such alternative, closed-loop spaces fosters positive faculty-candidate interaction, provides pathways for collaborative experiences, nurtures self-efficiacy, and the ability to partner authentically through talking, presenting, debating within groups in a constructed safe metaverse space.
