About the E-Learning Fellows Program

Through face-to-face sessions and online meetings, a cohort of 12 faculty members will learn firsthand how to create and deliver high-quality online courses.  They will also be introduced to ways that online courses can be evaluated and improved through self-reflection and peer-review for both formative and summative purposes.  The program culminates with each participant developing a complete online or hybrid course that meets uniform, high-quality standards.

Goals and Outcomes

Successful participants will gain firsthand experience in and/or understanding of:

  1. The strategic importance of distance learning
  2. Roles of online faculty (differentiation between design and delivery)
  3. Responsibilities in managing and leading online courses
  4. Unique needs of students in an online environment
  5. Importance of beginning class with minimal first-day problems
  6. Breaking course content and assessments into workable chunks and defining a course schedule
  7. Creating an online learning community
  8. Managing online course Web sites on a day-to-day basis
  9. Identifying the proper medium and tools to accomplish course tasks
  10. Assessing online student learning and providing feedback
  11. Assessing quality of online courses (using rubrics such as Quality Matters)
  12. Building a course in Isidore ready for delivery

Apply for the E-Learning Fellows Program

You should only fill out this form if you've talked with your department chair about potentially participating in the E-Learning Fellows Program AND if you're available from 3:00-5:00 on Wednesday afternoons during the spring 2015 semester

Completing this application does not guarantee that you'll be selected for the E-Learning Fellows Program. Your name will be added to the pool of candidates and 12 individuals will be chosen to participate in the program. If you're selected, we will contact your department chair for final approval.  All applicants will be notified after acceptance, or not, into the program by the first week of December, if not sooner.

How will the 2017 cohort be chosen?

The facilitators of the program, in collaboration with the office for Graduate Academic Affairs, will review each application with three factors in mind.

  1. Perceived value added for the department/university
  2. Preparedness of applicant to undertake the program
  3. Potential for personal and professional growth through the program
