Abstract

Current educational literature stresses the importance of a task-based approach to instruction, rather than an emphasis on content delivery. However, as institutions attempt to meet the demand for online courses, many offerings still focus on presenting online content resources with minimal opportunity for interactions and active learning. To help faculty with the complex problem of designing pedagogically sound online course components, the University of Waterloo developed an instructional design model, T5, to provide a shared campus-wide vocabulary for active learning online. The model is embedded as a gateway to existing Learning Management Systems (LMS); the model promotes the creation of a learning environment with a collaborative-constructivist approach to online learning. In this paper, we describe the components of this model and how the model promotes an integrated instructional approach, as well as the sharing of resources, between on-campus and distance education course delivery. In addition, we describe how faculty are guided in course development and delivery and the options available to provide faculty with different levels of engagement with the course delivery system.
