Description   Seeing is believing! or so the saying goes! Faculty who are considering teaching online find seeing actual courses and hearing them described can be especially valuable. Discussing the online instructional strategies that really work with the people using them is especially helpful. While both of the courses being described are radically different, being taught in two separate schools, they are related in a couple of distinct ways. Both are completely open online and do not use Blackboard. Adult and Juvenile Justice Policy is taught in the School of Social Work Masters of Social Work program and is a service-learning course. Students are actively engaged in individualized digital activism projects. Course content is delivered in a means relevant to assessing their own projects. Teaching, Learning and Technology in Higher Education is co-taught through the Graduate Schools Preparing Future Faculty Program, and is focused on helping doctoral and post-doctoral students expand their ideas about teaching practice in the modern age. Student engagement approaches for both classes are very different, but both courses are open. Join this conversation about what David McLeod has found to be essential components of an online course and how collaboration made his courses successful. This is a brown bag lunch format. Bring your lunch and a friend.
