In light of the increased demand for high-quality online courses and programs, instructional designers and course developers are facing new challenges. To ensure the development of effective courses and a high level of engagement for a variety of learners, course developers must effectively use the online environment, establishing measurable learning outcomes and the means for achieving them.

Join your colleagues in Denver to learn how you can design more effective online courses. Topics include:

* Constructing instructional strategies
* Developing instructional designs that are aligned with course objectives
* Facilitating interactivity in the online course
* Utilizing technologies to support learning
* Implementing and evaluating course delivery

Instructional designers, course developers, instructional technologists, and anyone involved in the design and development of online courses will benefit most from this conference. Participants will leave this hands-on event with an operational understanding of how to design, develop, implement, evaluate, and revise online courses.

The conference is structured to balance information sharing, targeted learning activities, group work, and collaboration with colleagues. Through the use of case studies and collaborative work you will be able to directly apply the knowledge that you have gained during the conference with guidance from the instructors.

Since you will be actively engaged in using online technologies and will be asked to interact with other participants through various tools, you will need a laptop computer with wireless capability for this event. This provides a hands-on understanding of how you and your students can use various online tools in your courses.

We encourage you to bring course materials that can be used to begin building an online course. Conference proceedings will be delivered to you on a flash drive rather than in a binder.
