Projects completed in the professional role of Sr. Instructional Designer at Denver Seminary.
OSM: Online Skills Mastery Course
The OSM is a core part of Denver Seminary’s online faculty development program. The five-week training course is for faculty new to online teaching and learning and equips them to design their own online courses and later become effective instructors. I have been a key part of developing, updating, and teaching the OSM since its launch. Provided here are a few screenshots of the course site.
Online Teaching & Learning with Video-Conferencing Technology
Training Videos for Zoom Technology
Tutorial videos created for instructors and students using Zoom video-conferencing technology (zoom.us) during live synchronous class sessions. Tutorials are for both hosts (teachers) and participants (students). VIEW VIDEOS on the Zoom Tutorials webpage: https://jackisoister.com/zoom-tutorials.
OTO: Faculty Training Module on Online Engagement & Interaction
This “microteaching demonstration’ involves one module of a three-module Online Teaching Orientation (OTO) training course that equips faculty new to online teaching to engage and interact with their online students. It covers three core online learning activities: text-based threaded discussions (Moodle), video-based discussions (VoiceThread), and synchronous video-conferencing sessions (Zoom technology).
Online & Blended Course Development
Online course development begins with Backward Design with the Learning Objectives clearly established prior to the plans for Assessments and Learning Activities. I designed this fillable Course Blueprint to graphically display the process for both faculty and instructional designers. The resulting course architecture provides the basis for next steps in each course’s development.
