The formal online course development process is connected to a stipend that is initiated, approved, and paid for through college chairs and deans.
Program and Course Support
WMUx offers support to the campus community in each of the following areas:
Teaching and Learning Consultations
Our goal is to collaborate with you to imagine, design, and develop engaging and effective learning experiences. Do you wish you could do something differently? Do you imagine there must be a better way? Unsure of how to take a great course activity and translate that to another modality? We are here for those discussions. Meet with a member of our instructional support team in a one-on-one or group setting to explore best practices in teaching and learning. We will review instructional materials, discuss different ideas for delivery, and explore how you can revisit or redesign activities or a whole course. We will talk about pedagogy, organization, and design, and guide you through integrating new and effective technologies into your work. You are not an island, and we look forward to collaborating with you on the next iteration of your learning experience – whatever the modality.
Our instructional design team is here to collaborate with you to create quality learning experiences. Our goal is to make teaching and learning an engaging and effective experience for all involved by providing ongoing support in the form of training, professional development, and consultations to both individuals and small groups for the development of learning experiences in any modality.
We have three main options for course development:
All three options facilitate the creation of quality learning experiences and are designed to ensure that instructors have the support they need. The process begins with collaborative ideation and ends with a plan for iteration.
