About the Institute

The goal of the Institute is to improve the quality of UTK courses by redesigning them using one of the following delivery methodologies:

  • ONLINE: A course that is offered totally online in an engaging, interactive format
  • FLIPPED: A course that uses a pedagogical model in which the typical lecture and homework elements are reversed. Lecture / content material is presented in an engaging online format so that class time can be spent on problem-solving, discussion, and group activities that reflect higher levels of learning.
  • HYBRID: A course that uses online technologies to replace a subset of face-to-face sessions (for example, currently in the Spanish language offerings, one session a week is online). The online time is instructor-designed and facilitated, with interaction between instructor and student, and student-to-student.

The Institute participants will receive the intense faculty development experience that includes exchange of ideas with colleagues; sessions on course design, teaching strategies, and assessment; technology-specific workshops; and instructional development assignments aimed at designing and developing a transformed course.Contact tolsen@utk.edu or iloboda@utk.edu  if you have questions.
