The Justice Institute of British Columbia and Vancouver Community College are hosting a one day workshop on November 24, 2010 at the Justice Institute of BC in New Westminster.


The purpose of this event is to bring together post-secondaries in the lower mainland to showcase their “best” online courses.

Each institution has picked 1 or 2 examples of their best in one or more of the following categories (total 2 submissions/institution):

1. Best extended LMS: how do you extend your institutional LMS to create a well-designed online course? Or, do you have a best example of a course built outside of the LMS?

2. Instructional Design: show your course that is your most creative instructional design or addressed a challenging teaching and learning context problem.

The format

Each presentation is 20 minutes, with a collective 30 minute discussion at the end of each category. There will also be a final 30 minute discussion following the category sessions that focusses on what we saw from a design/look and feel perspective and its importance to instructional design. Refreshments and lunch will be provided.

If you’d like to attend the Online Showcase at the JIBC in person on November 24 2010, registration is open over here. Catering will be ordered on Nov 19, so cut off for registration is Nov.19 at NOON

For those of you outside of the lower mainland, there will  likely be some sort of webcasting/capturing of at least the presentation part of the showcase.
