Information for ISU Faculty
The Fall 2013 Faculty Development Schedule is up and ready for registration. Please check out the schedule below, and register for the sessions you would like to attend by contacting our office at (812) 237-2345 or email@example.com
Online Instructor Certificate Course
The Online Instructor Certificate Course was developed to provide faculty with the necessary contacts and skills needed to develop courses to be offered at a distance. This program, over the last year and a half, has assisted 67 faculty members in the course design process. This course is NOT about Blackboard. It does cover the pedagogical aspects of teaching online. Some aspects covered in the course are digital copyright issues, course design considerations, developing online activities, incorporating developmental writing into your course, engaging your students, and so much more. To be eligible for the stipend the faculty member must be teaching online foundational studies courses or in a new online program that has been approved for the stipend. Further eligibility requirements can be found on the application. The spring semester course will run from January 20-April 6. Please click below to fill out the application, and review a copy of the Summer 2013 course calendar. Send applications to Samantha Penney, firstname.lastname@example.org (DH239) by January 8, 2014.
The Distance Education department was charged with the task of examining the best practices at peer institutions, examining current practices at ISU, and drafting a set of proposed guidelines that would be used to conduct classes and programs through ISU's Distance Education. Guidelines for administrating distance education are now available to ISU faculty, students, and staff.
You are encouraged to take advantage of the extra
assistance offered by Distance Education’s Instructional Design Specialists to
design and maintain your online and traditional courses.

Our new classroom in DH303 is a mobile classroom with furniture that can be moved around at the teachers discretion. It seats 30. We will soon have a new classroom in TA229 that seats 24.
