Ongoing Training for Online Instruction at AUT

AUT faculty members of Fall 2020, online courses attended a 1-day workshop entitled, Designing Online Courses for AUT Mission-Specific Learning, during three consecutive days, September 8, 9, and 10, in AUT Auditorium, Halat Campus. The workshops were organized by AUT Office of Institutional Effectiveness & Strategy & the Information Technology Office. Faculty from all AUT campuses were supported in their efforts to design and deliver their online courses using the Integrated Course Design Model (ICD, Fink 2013), with strong emphasis on backward design. A variety or latest educational technology tools (Ed Tech Tools) were employed in the workshop for training purposes and for faculty to use in their respective, upcoming Fall courses. Towards the end of the day, faculty were also trained on the use of our upgraded Learning Management System (LMS) and video-conferencing platforms, such as Google Meet, Big Blue Button, and Zoom.
