Award Winning Course Design

AT&T Awards CEP807
AT&T Awards CEP807

I am proud to share the news that one of the online courses I have taught and developed has been recognized with an award of excellence in instructional technology.  The course CEP807/ED870 is the capstone course for the MAET Program at Michigan State University that requires students to develop an online portfolio sharing their academic, professional achievements and essay reflections.  This course encompasses many features, but most prominently are: authentic audience, learning by doing, peer learning, and public scholarship.

Online Course Award - 2012 AT&T Awards

I am proud to announce that CEP 820: Teaching K12 Students Online (a full online course) has been recognized with an honorable mention for the MSU AT&T Award of Excellence. This course has seen a long history of iteration and revision. This course is a unique example of teaching K12 teachers how to teach online, through a fully online course.  Throughout the course, best practices, and innovative uses of technology were employed to serve as an exemplar online course in which all of the concepts and practices taught were demonstrated in the course environment.  To this aim, students in the course were able to experience principles of good design and gain first-hand experiences and reflect on the usage of various online teaching tools.
