Spring 2014-- ED 616: Online Learning

Online Teaching & Learning In Your School

Starts With Pace in Spring 2014


What are the best online learning opportunities for your students or school?

How can you plan for success in using digital tools for learning?

How can you overcome obstacles to implementation?

Join the Pace University School of Education for a special section of ED 616: Learning Online: Curriculum, Instruction, and Implementation Design for the Spring 2014 semester. Available for credit or for a certificate of completion, this online course is perfect for teachers and administrators who want to implement the best digital tools and practices to ensure student success. This online course will cover a broad spectrum of issues related to implementing online learning solutions, including:

  • the history and concepts associated with K-12 online learning,
  • engaging in a hands-on evaluation framework, and
  • testing these ideas on massive open online courses (MOOCs), third-party K-12 online courses, iTunes U, and video gaming environments. 

At the end of the course, participants will have prepared a complete online learning proposal and implementation plan that can jumpstart the efforts in your school. You will gain knowledge of the online learning landscape, research-based tools for evaluating the quality of curricula--including alignment to Common Core and the Danielson Framework--as well as an awareness of implementation quagmires, and presenting your findings to school and district leadership to proceed with confidence.
