Learn about a model for the development of technology-rich online and blended programs and courses for adult learners that has evolved from experience and the research literature at the Johns Hopkins University Center for Technology in Education (CTE). CTE's Online Learning Model builds upon adult learning theory, principles of backward design, professional development standards, and ISTE’s National Educational Technology Standards for Teachers (NETS-T) to create high quality, project-based online and blended courses. These courses are designed to support high levels of interaction using web-based technology tools, as well as community-building, high-performance teaming, and ongoing participant reflection. In this session, gain practical techniques and strategies for establishing development roles and timelines that model digital-age work and learning. Also, learn how to design digital-age online assessments and activities while ensuring continuity, maintaining participant momentum, and creating media-rich content. Explore creative applications of Web 2.0 tools in online and blended courses that inspire active student learning and knowledge construction. Throughout this presentation, gain best practices for applying the NETS-T in the design of your online and blended courses to engage participants and promote learning. Also, discover how this instructional design model was applied to the development of the Johns Hopkins University Online Graduate Certificate in School Administration and Supervision, a NETS-A aligned program in partnership with ISTE.
