Two training course options remain available this summer for the Online Course Development Institute (OCDi). The Self-Directed OCDi is completely online and allows participants to work at their own pace. With open enrollment for the self-directed OCDi, participants can begin and complete the training at any time. The other option for summer is a cohort. The cohort will meet face-to-face as a group in one-hour sessions for discussion and demonstration. Additional components are completed online. Optional face-to-face technology training is available, as well. The cohort will meet weekly during the eight-week summer term. Go here for a schedule, registration and more information.
