Design 2 Align
Whether you’re designing a new course, migrating a course to Canvas, or refining a course you’ve been teaching for a while this workshop will help you develop a strategy for using the OEI Course Design Rubric to enrich your course. During the workshop you’ll identify areas in your course that can be improved to facilitate learning and enhance student success, and we’ll share strategies for designing exemplary courses in Canvas. Over the course of the workshop you’ll complete a self-assessment of your course so you’re one step closer to completing the OEI Exchange review process.

Peer Online Course Reviewer (POCR) Training
On behalf of the Online Education Initiative (OEI), @ONE is seeking participants interested in becoming online course reviewers. We are seeking individuals who have conducted trainings for online faculty and who may have participated in other course review efforts. The first step is to attend a "Would you like to be Peer Online Course Reviewer" webinar. Then, you are eligible to participate in the POCR training. The POCR training is a three-week fully online course, and it is anticipated the course will take approximately 20 hours to complete. During the training participants will be required to review an online course by providing review responses for each area of the rubric. Upon completion, POCRs will be eligible to be hired on a contract basis by the Online Education Initiative to perform course reviews*. If you are interested in attending a webinar:
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to complete both a webinar and the POCR training to be able to review courses?
If you would like to review courses for the OEI Exchange, yes you must complete both a webinar and the online POCR training.
Can I participate in just the webinar?
Yes! We know that faculty and staff across the system would like to become more familiar with the OEI Course Design Rubric for a variety of reasons, not just to become a POCR for the OEI Exchange. Based on this feedback we have designed the training to be beneficial for both those who do desire to become POCRs and those who plan to use the rubric for individual or college wide online course improvements.
Is there compensation for either of these trainings?
No. Compensation for these training opportunities will not be provided by @ONE or OEI. You may wish to contact your local college to see if they provide allowances for compensation.
When will course reviews take place, how much time is required for each review and what is the compensation?
Course reviews will be an ongoing process. You will learn more about the review process as part of the POCR training. The time required for course reviews will depend on the course, but it is estimated that it will take between 5 to 10 hours per course. Course reviewers will be compensated $300 per course reviewed.
My college is one of the pilot colleges chosen, will this cause a problem with also being a POCR?
No, however, you will not be involved in reviewing any courses submitted from your college.
My college is not one of the pilot colleges, can I still participate in the webinar and POCR Training?
Can I become an online course reviewer without completing the training because I have a lot of experience and education?
Not at this time.
I cannot attend any of the currently listed webinars, what should I do?
We suggest signing up for the POCR webinar interest list, so when additional workshops are available you will be notified. Webinars and POCR training dates will vary each semester.
I still have questions, who should I contact?
