Abstract

Engaging learners can be challenging in any educational setting. However, the physical separation of instructor and student that is present in online learning can create an additional barrier. This poster discusses an educational development initiative undertaken by Columbia Southern University (CSU) to increase both faculty participation and virtual learner engagement by implementing a collaborative partnership between instructional designers and course writers that also serve as faculty. Faculty members at CSU are typically subject matter experts in their disciplines. Combining the curriculum development skills of instructional designers with the industry knowledge of faculty not only guarantees course material is accurate and useful to students, but also encourages instructor/student engagement by ensuring material is relevant and presented in the voice of knowledgeable individuals from the associated field of study.
