Because of the differences between online teaching and face-to-face instruction, faculty who have limited online teaching experience need assistance to design, develop, and deliver online courses. To facilitate faculty with such efforts, the instructional designers at a large public university in the Southeast of the United State provide one-on-one instructional design consultation and support to faculty. However, this practice has limited scalability in that instructional designers have to guide faculty through the entire course design life cycle. To increase the number of faculty that the instructional designers can serve, they will develop a self-paced asynchronous course, which allows faculty to learn how to design and deliver online courses at any time from anywhere and at their own pace. This course will also provide a learning community, in which participants can join in discussions, share information and resources, collaborate with other faculty in designing courses, or critique and review each other’s courses.
