Designing for Presence: QM and the Community of Inquiry (CoI) Framework as Guides
Bethany Simunich, Director, Online Pedagogy and Research, Kent State University System
This workshop explores the intersection of instructional design principles, the Quality Matters Rubric standards, and the Community of Inquiry (CoI) framework. Teaching presence begins with the design of the course, but many QM standards also work to promote presence opportunities (including teaching, social, and cognitive) while the course is being delivered. Participants will gain a firm grounding in the CoI framework, then discuss various design and development best practices that can provide presence opportunities, while also exploring ways to focus on presence during delivery.
