Design and Implementation of Universal Course Shell Templates to Enhance Student Outcomes in Online Degree Programs
This presentation details the process implemented by university faculty members of an Educational Administration Master's Degree and Principal Preparation Program to develop a universal course shell template. The rationale behind the need to build a universal course shell template will be addressed, which includes the ability to further a) move toward a true competency-based degree program, b) enhance student learning outcomes, c) maintain a consistent design across course shells to facilitate student comfort levels within an online environment, and d) transition faculty who are previously unfamiliar with online teaching into this delivery method.
