Event Details

Students are hungry for authentic dialogue in their classes, but tune out when attempts turn into debates or lectures. Using technology to “flip the classroom” and teach concepts online, class time can be maximized for student dialogue and deeper levels of meaning making. While the Center for Intercultural Programs historically has partnered with faculty to implement live workshops that blend lecture, activities, and dialogue about diversity, recently the Center collaborated with selected faculty to create animated, narrated online diversity modules to pilot with different courses in order to provide necessary concepts for richer in-class dialogue. By assigning online diversity modules to students as pre-class “reading,” students have more time to participate in experiential learning simulations, dialogue about their life experiences, and discuss how course content is reflected in their personal and professional lives. This workshop will explore best practices for online education module design, integration into live classes, and learning evaluation design and utilization. This workshop would particularly benefit faculty who are interested in: creating online modules, teaching students diversity content online, and maximizing student dialogue through online content delivery.

By the end of this workshop participants will be able to:

  • Identify relevant theories and strategies to inform online education module design.
  • Identify strategies to integrate online education modules into courses, as well as the related benefits for student learning.
  • Identify strategies to design online learning surveys and utilize online learning survey results to advance student learning in the course.
  • Identify specific ways they can develop and/or integrate online education modules related to diversity and social justice into future courses.


Presented by Scott Tharp (Center for Intercultural Programs).

Light refreshments will be served.
