Title: Let’s Get ‘Em Engaged Online!
Presented by: Annetta Dolowitz – University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB)
Michael Dorneich – Iowa State University

Time: 8:00 AM – 9:45 AM

The purpose of this workshop is to review the best practice principles for creating and implementing the Readiness Assurance Process (RAP) and 4S application activities in an online course. The workshop will be delivered in a hybrid format with both face-to-face and online components. In the pre-workshop online portion, participants will reading materials, form teams, and conduct an online RAP process. In the workshop itself, the face-to-face portion, participants will complete their team-RAT with their other team members, engage in discussion, and conduct 4S application activities where teams will continue collaborating in the online format while they complete these application activities. Finally, barriers to success (i.e. cheating or team loafers) and strategies to proactively reduce these barriers will be discussed. Presenters will (1) review recommendations from the TBL Online Community of Practice Applications Group manuscript, in process, and (2) discuss how these principles can be integrating into the design and development of online courses utilizing the TBL instructional strategy, and (3) consider alignment of these principles with QM Standards. Participants will have the opportunity to experience use of an online platform to deliver the RAP and application exercise components of TBL. Through the interactive session, participants will have a clearer perception of students’ online experience and how making use of existing tools can simplify the process and assist in running these components of TBL smoothly. This workshop is for individuals familiar with TBL who are currently teaching online courses, designing online courses, delivering professional development, and/or are interested in how TBL may be facilitated in an online environment. TBL educators who are looking for ideas or how to resolve issues they are encountering, particularly in the RAP and 4S application exercise components of delivering TBL online, may also find this workshop valuable.
