Abstract

Developing an effective online learning environment requires course instructors to integrate technology, pedagogy, and content knowledge (TPACK) into teaching. Focusing on a TPACK-based design for a fully online course in qualitative research methods, this chapter provides a detailed description of developing an online course in three stages: (1) planning and designing a course, (2) preparing an effective course syllabus, and (3) developing activities and assessments. Rubrics as assessment tools are used extensively for grading competencies in the core assignments, addressing the issue of how best to evaluate learning outcomes based on the criterion referenced assessment. The chapter describes that learning activities and assessments are so closely intertwined that it is almost impossible to discuss one without discussing the other, as one seeks to optimize online learning. The description thus supports the principle of instructors who not only become facilitators of learning but also motivators for students in online courses.
