Drawing on Wilmington University's experience in developing high quality blended and online courses, this presentation will outline a systematic approach for training faculty to teach and design online courses. The model used provides a sustainable approach to course design that integrates pedagogical knowledge and curriculum alignment into the design process. Building a multi-faceted training program for faculty requires strategy, resources, and a communication plan. During this session, we will share support components that have been provided in a variety of settings and formats that compliment a Multiple Intelligence Theory-based approach. Over 500 faculty members have developed online courses with the support of various training sessions matching their personal learning style, technology comfort level, and course objectives. Professional development is seamlessly integrated into a Hybrid and Online Training (HOT) course, the design structure used for all online and blended courses, the planning documents and an end of development rubric. The tools and resources used in the process will be examined and participants will be given the opportunity to discuss how this model can be adapted to their unique situation. Participants will be given access to all of the materials presented during the session.
