Consulting and Speaking
I am mostly retired, but enjoy occasional engagements, such as webinars, workshops, book clubs, podcasts and interviews.
Consulting on Online Program and Course Designs
In consulting I focus on the design of online programs and the courses within programs. I work with faculty on identifying core concepts, designing for presence to support satisfaction, learning and retention, and redesigning online courses to include projects as an alternative to high stakes proctored exams. I bring many years of experience to working individually with faculty and staff at major research universities as well as baccalaureate and comprehensive institutions, and community colleges.
Webinars and Workshops
Some of my recent webinars and workshops include support of faculty development efforts at an Australian institution of higher learning, nursing faculty in Missouri, and as a guest speaker for a colleague teaching at a distance learning course in Illinois and guest speaker for a group in Switzerland. Other workshops focused on the Ten Best Practices for Teaching Online, designing for the four phases of a course, and participating in a faculty book club. Other webinars from 2020 focused on building community and structuring and nurturing presence in the new synchronous focused online course model. I also worked with ACUE on their online teaching program that supports faculty in developing expertise in all aspects of teaching online.
Note: I am currently living in Tallahassee FL (Eastern Time Zone). The best way to reach me to discuss planning and availability for these events is via email, at judith followed by designingforlearning.org. Information about honoraria and expenses and general arrangements is available via phone.
