In this webinar, Dr. Connie Fisk, Extension Educator – Regional Food Systems, discusses best practices for course design that she’s learned as an instructor and reviewer of online college courses across the country.  She focuses on recommendations for competency-based courses such as those offered by Extension professionals through and share steps for making your Microsoft Office documents ADA accessible.

Dr. Fisk gives a brief overview of one common course evaluation rubric and how it is used for peer review of online courses.  These same standards are also useful when planning a face-to-face program as they are all focused on what the instructor develops before learners arrive.

Dr. Fisk has been teaching online since 2008 and has been a Quality Matters Certified Peer Reviewer of online courses since 2014.  She received a Master Distance Educator Award from the Wyoming Distance Education Consortium in 2014 and in 2015 was honored to be included in the Hall of Excellence for QM Reviewers.
