Collaborative and Responsive Model of Course Development

Laramie County Community College

Traditionally, online course offerings were produced as needed rather than programmatically with minimal consistency in delivery or development of course materials.

The Center for Learning Technologies complied research on best practices for consistent, high quality online course delivery led to the formation of this project. The instructional designers and subject matter experts collaborated to design both online that ensure comparability and consistency in meeting course competencies and learning objectives that mirror LCCC’s face-2-face courses.

Technical Education at a Distance (TED) Model

Mitchell Technical Institute

Technical training and education typically includes face-to-face opportunities for students to observe, practice, and demonstrate hands-on skills needed to achieve required program competencies. The issue is how to provide hands-on skill training for online students without requiring their travel to campus. Furthermore, online students often feel disconnected and isolated in their studies. The TED model uses a variety of tools and activities to overcome this barrier.

Provide a hybrid delivery model incorporating web based videoconferencing, mobile device technologies, virtual simulations, highly interactive software, mentors, and off-campus regional labs. Combined, this results in online instruction and hands-on skills training that results in high quality "Technical Education at a Distance". This tool has been piloted to provide a distance delivery option for students enrolled in the Speech-Language Pathology Assistant (SLPA) Associates of Applied Science (AAS) degree program at Mitchell Technical Institute.
