    Workshop 1: Design-Based Research (DBR) on MOOCs and Open Education
    MOOCs and other open education delivery methods have expanded enormously during the past decade. MOOCs have become an increasingly popular vehicle for delivering learning opportunities. There are endless reports, announcements, courses, and programs involving MOOCs. Consequently, there is a dire need for additional research related to MOOCs and open education. Today, design-based research (DBR) methods are playing an increasingly greater role in e-learning research. Hence, this workshop is designed to provide an overview of both areas; namely, MOOCs and DBR. It will also lead to practical outcomes in the form of a research design for DBR related to MOOCs and open education. The intended audience of this highly interactive and informative workshop includes academics, educators, researchers, consultants, managers, instructional designers, learning center directors, etc.

The TCC multimedia team supports teachers that want to create dynamic media instructional tools. Participants in this session will hear from two multimedia experts and a teacher who increased student success and retention due to the support of the multimedia team. Multimedia tools were the key to redesigning classes to incorporate Universal Design for Learning and Open Educational Resources. Students will share how multimedia projects helped them be more engaged and take learning to a deeper level. All levels of experience are welcome. Advanced media users will be inspired with examples and fresh ideas. Beginners will leave the session with a link to a web page full of samples and online tutorials for teachers who want to dive into creating more visual learning tools.

    Workshop 3: Six Secrets for Evaluating Online Teaching
    Thomas J. Tobin , B. Jean Mandernach & Ann H. Taylor
    What makes online teaching different from face-to-face teaching? How can we tell when it’s done well? Faculty members, administrators, and IT leaders will learn six evaluation “secrets” from the authors of the new book, Evaluating Online Teaching. You’ll get use-them-now strategies, tools, and templates to bring back to your campus. The evaluation of online teaching raises questions unique to the medium, questions that IT leaders and faculty members in higher education often don’t have guidance or experience in resolving. Most learning management systems (LMSes) now record every click that students and faculty members make. This workshop will help participants to • determine what online content and practices “count” as teaching behaviors, • separate hype from useful information about data analytics in the LMS, and • create campus policy and procedures for using online data for teaching evaluation.

    Workshop 5: The WeCollabrify Suite of Free, Collabrified, ProductivityApps: Supporting Synchronous Collaboration InPrimary/Middle Grades
    Collaboration is a key 21st century skill. The CCSS calls “collaboration” an Anchor Skill. NEA’s Partnership for 21st Century Skills includes “collaboration” as one of the 4Cs – a skill that is needed for success in our global marketplace. With support from the WeCollabrify Suite of collabrified apps (free!), students learn how to collaborate synchronously by actually engaging in co-creating or co-editing a range of documents: WeCompose (writing), WeMap (concept mapping), WeKWL, WeSketch (drawing & animating). WeCollabrify apps support learners when they are co-located (in the classroom) and when they are not, e.g., working at home. A student never needs to learn alone again! Written in HTML5, the WeCollabrify apps are device-agnostic: all four apps run on iPads, Android tablets, laptops & desktops. The WeCollabrify apps make a BYOD classroom work! In our workshop, then, we will review lessons developed by primary and middle school teachers that employ the WeCollabrify apps.
