Shared Design Patterns With Content Using a Common Language for High Impact Courses

This project has as its goal the identification and sharing of course design patterns that produce the greatest results in an online environment. The project has a timeline that includes reviewing, analyzing and aggregating the most effective practices in specific disciplines and then creating models using these practices. The models will be published and the usage and success of the models will be tracked across the state. Consistent and continual input from online instructors and course designers across the state will be a vital part of the process.

Planned project tasks include:

Oklahoma Quality Summit Program Development 

The goal of this project is to guide the development of the Oklahoma Quality Summit program so that it meets the needs of educators and leaders in the state of Oklahoma. The summit provides a collaboration opportunity to discuss effective practices and innovations shaping online and hybrid learning. This project will guide the development of the summit program so that it connects with the vision and directions advanced by COLE.
