Projects completed and leadership roles as the 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 2017 launch. Provided here are a few screenshots of the course site.
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.
