Designing an Online Gen Ed Course That Works

Wednesday, Oct. 17
2 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Jeff Young, History
GSU Downtown Campus || Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning

Jeffrey Young will discuss the best practices in online course design that emerged from his experience teaching the introductory American history course. Over the past three years, Young and his colleagues in the Department of History have examined learning management system data about student learning outcomes in order to rework course design elements that were creating obstacles to student success. In his presentation, he will reflect on this process and will outline the design principles that have contributed to the success of history students enrolled in online survey history courses.
