About Our Workshops

The ODE offers several types of synchronous and asynchronous trainings that fulfill both professional development needs and certification requirements. Expand the sections below to read about the trainings we offer, or scroll to sign up for our synchronous sessions on our calendar!

  • Beginning Summer 2023, all faculty will need to be certified to teach asynchronous online, synchronous online, and hybrid courses. Instructors and facilitators can be certified in a number of ways. For information on what certification course is right for you, please review the Professional Development page. 

    The ODE currently offers three different certification courses:

    • Designing and Implementing Sustainable Courses (DISCO)
      Hybrid: 4-hour synchronous bootcamp, followed by a mix of asynchronous modules and 2-hour synchronous meetings
      This year-long experience is designed for new full-time faculty at KSU. It features interactive lectures on sustainable course design and development, advanced skills in D2L and other instructional technologies, the scholarship of teaching and learning, and many other topics. 
      Certification to build and teach courses in all modalities

    • Sustainable Course Design Seminar (SCDS)
      Hybrid: 4-hour synchronous bootcamp followed by 5 asynchronous modules
      This seminar-style workshop will cover sustainable course design, accessibility, advanced D2L and other instructional technologies, how to meet quality standards, copyright, cheating prevention, open educational resources, and many other topics. It takes the place of our previous, award-winning Build a Web Course (BWC) workshop, which was retired in Summer 2022.

    • Online Template Course Facilitators Training
      Asynchronous

      This 2-hour training module is an introduction to best practices for teaching online template course practices in RCHSS.

      *Please note: You will be asked to provide an identifier so you can save your progress. The identifier simply functions as that--just write in something you can remember so you can continue your progress should you leave the training incomplete.

    • Introduction to Sustainable Course Design: This one-hour workshop introduces attendees to the idea of sustainable course design and supports attendees in assessing what course materials are best suited to various modes of delivery.  
    • Helps and Hints for Hybrids: Creating a hybrid version of your course offers unique opportunities but several unique challenges as well. This workshop offers a quick guide to creating effective, successful hybrid courses based on the Sustainable Course Design model.
    • Painless Accessibility: Learn about digital/online accessibility, why it's important for your class, and how to start the process of converting inaccessible materials into accessible ones.

    • Getting into the Nitty Gritty of Gradebook: Need some assistance with your gradebook? Need to learn about gradebook, in general? Join Julie Newell in this introduction and troubleshooting session!
  • We also offer department and program specific brownbag workshops on a variety of topics. In the past, we have conducted one-session workshops on: 

    • Course affordability and open educational resources (OERs)
    • D2L Orientation
    • Microsoft Teams
    • SoftChalk

    If you are interested in scheduling a brownbag workshop, please let us know by reaching out to rchssode@kennesaw.edu
