The importance of instructional design training and an enhanced learning environment for students is well known to all colleges of the university. It took place as part of a university-wide strategy to provide the knowledge and skills needed to capitalize on one of the fastest growing areas of education while creating captivating learning experiences for students. The primary objectives of the course were to improve student learning, engagement, interaction, and most importantly quality learning. These objectives were solidified by the core foundation of the program that participants would be able to:
- Create content items to present a variety of learning activities to enhance student learning.
- Deliver authentic assessments to evaluate student knowledge in a variety of meaningful ways.
- Use Blackboard communication tools to promote interactions between the student and instructor, the student and course content, and the student and peers.
- Effectively utilize Blackboard Collaborate™ tools to increase student engagement by providing a means to share and create knowledge.
The course was an overall success and will continue on a periodic basis as a part of the developmental projects of the Tamkeen team. Special thanks to Mohammed Jarallah, Training Manager, and Dr. Khaled M. Mohanna, E-Learning Team Manager, for their holistic support.
As a final note, Mohsin Raza Khan received a certificate of appreciation by the Deanship of E-Learning for his efforts.
