Magna Online Workshops are two-part programs conducted by leading experts on key learning topics. On the first day, the workshop involves a 60- to 120-minute online presentation. Participants will apply what they’ve learned back on the job between the first and second parts of the workshop. For example, they might create or revise a workbook, policy or system.
Following the first part of the workshop, participants will collaborate online with each other and/or the workshop leader to complete the project. During the second part of the online workshop – usually within one to four weeks, depending on the project – the presenter will discuss how to successfully implement the new learning solution on your campus/in your department. Each workshop will include supporting materials to reinforce the concepts that are presented, and a lot of valuable extras to round out these professional development programs.
In this two-part workshop, presenter Barbara Jacoby, PhD will first walk you through the fundamentals of course design, including real-world service-learning examples from a variety of disciplines. Then for the next week you will collaborate online with Dr. Jacoby and fellow participants; getting individual feedback on your syllabus and course ideas. During the second workshop, Dr. Jacoby will review in depth roughly a half-dozen syllabi submitted by participants, highlighting their strengths and explaining how to integrate key elements into your own syllabus.
