WebCampus Course Makeover: Season 10 - Fall 2011
(Currently accepting applications)
Note: courses participating in the FALL 2011 Course Makeover will receive feedback relevant to the new version of WebCampus.
Faculty who use WebCampus learning tools and wish to develop better course material are invited to participate in the WebCampus Course Makeover program.
The goal of this program is to help instructors with WebCampus course development by providing them with an opportunity to participate in constructive feedback regarding WebCampus course design and/or course delivery.
The WebCampus Course Makeover will provide participants with detailed pedagogical advice and feedback on their own course from a team consisting of peers, professional Instructional Designers, and students. The reviews will be based on Rubric for Online Instruction developed by CSU, Chico. In addition, the Instructional Design Team (part of Teaching and Learning Technologies) will provide individualized help with the participant’s course should they choose to implement any changes suggested by the reviewers. Participants will be required to provide a self assessment of their course and to serve as part of the peer review panel assessing two other submitted courses.
Any current UNR instructor, full or part-time, may submit a course for review.
Any UNR course that was taught using WebCampus PRIOR to the current semester (the course must be completed).
Note 1: There is a limit on the number of courses that can be reviewed every semester and applications will be processed on the first come, first served basis.
Note 2: To allow all departments to equally participate in this program, we are currently limiting the number of courses from each department to ONE each semester, on the first come, first served basis.
