Great Course Design and Free, Accessible Resources: An Unlikely Love Story

In this session, we will:

1) Examine how to best meet the needs of a variety of learners in your face-to-face, online, and hybrid courses by searching and FINDING engaging and helpful resources. Courses can be created for students at any grade level and are also useful for adult learners.

2) Use second and third generation web tools to help cement content through reflection and collaboration.

3) DESIGN the heck outta your course making it appealing to both look at and learn from!
