MicroCourse 2 – Online Teaching Fundamentals – Adapting Instruction

Date(s): Tuesday, July 20 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Micro2 – Adapting Instruction in Times of Crisis – Understanding Students’ Needs

This MicroCourse will cover community, connecting and routines, and flexibility in assessment.

Facilitator: Carol Suhr, Teaching and Learning Specialist, Internationalization


These series of MicroCourses will introduce the essential Blackboard tools, but the primary objective of these MicroCourses is the pedagogy behind the tools and how they can be used to:

  • Achieve learning objectives
  • Promote student engagement
  • Collaborate among peers and instructors
  • Creative easy-to-navigate course design
  • Assess student learning
  • Offer support to students
  • Create an online learning community

Delivery Each MicroCourse will be delivered in a one-hour scheduled synchronous session and an additional Blackboard course and asynchronous activity/ reading/ resource/ that would take about one hour. Sessions will be recorded for reference in the asynchronous courses.

All Sessions will be open to UFV employees. Each MicroCourse aims to require 1, 1.5, or 2 hours to complete, in-line with Lynda.com (LinkedIn) and Mentor Commons online courses. A synchronous component may be necessary in the Synchronous MicroSource. 

Feedback will be on a facilitator and peer feedback basis. Participants must create an activity, ILO, or assessment to complete the MicroCourse and receive a credential.

Each MicroCourse will reside in its own Blackboard course shell. Faculty will be required to self enroll for each course.

Self Enroll Registration for each MicroCourse in the series: Self-enroll instructions and How to Video 

Information: Teaching Remotely
