Quality Online Course Initiative (QOCI) Managing a Meaningful and Active Online Course

Learning is not a passive process; it requires action, experience, and engagement. This course emphasizes the need to think about online instruction in more active terms. During this course, faculty will reflect upon how they manage their online courses with the aim of helping faculty create and manage meaningful learning experiences in the online environment.

This is a real-time, fully online course taught by Becky Dodge, program director of Radiation Therapy (a fully online program), about managing a meaningful and active online course.

You will receive $100 stipend for completion of this course (completing all assignments).
