CourseFlow: Better Planning and Management of Online or Blended Courses

January 12 @ 12:30 - 14:00

Intercollegial Pedagogical Day presentation

Being thrown into online teaching, without preparation, has been one of the most stressful and exhausting experiences for college teachers. As we move beyond the survival mode, we are identifying new needs related to our jobs as instructors, one of these is the course management of lesson planning. CourseFlow is a digital application with unique features to address these needs. CourseFlow facilitates course management by generating a dynamic course outline, including schedule and course objectives, that can be edited and adapted easily; at the same time as allowing for links to course content. It supports lesson planning and pedagogical concerns by scaffolding the production of workflows that visualizes the planning of student engagement activities. Lastly but not least, the visual and dynamic nature of the workflows generated allows for collaboration on course planning among teachers and sharing of course outlines to new faculty.

 

The objectives of this session are the following:

  1. To introduce and demonstrate the basic features of CourseFlow
  2. To provide participants with an opportunity to explore the tool
  3. To open a discussion on how CourseFlow may be used to help both teachers and students manage the challenges of managing schedules (synchronous and asynchronous components) and assignments/assessments in online courses.

CourseFlow is a SALTISE funded project. It was developed by Jeremie Choquette, in collaboration with Liz Charles and part of an inter-institutional research project. It is a free tool that can be accessed through the SALTISE website.
