1:00 PM - 1:45 PM Thursday, March 17
Management Xchange Stage
The demand to create high-quality courses in shorter periods of time puts pressure on design teams to produce more with less. In addition, IDs must keep their skills honed and motivation high. In this session you will learn practical strategies that have been put in place at USF to enable the creation of 60 new multimedia-rich courses each semester—strategies that will help you with collaboration, peer review, and skill enhancement. In addition, you will get ideas for structuring a redundant framework and learn ways to leverage vendors to support peak periods.
