CTL Workshop: Student Course Time Estimator Tool Overview

October 22, 2020 at 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


The UBC Okanagan Centre for Teaching and Learning invites you to join us for a series of online workshops. This workshop will be hosted in Zoom. Everyone is welcome!


Student Course Time Estimator Tool Overview
Facilitators: Michelle Lamberson, Daulton Baird, UBCO Office of the Provost

This session will introduce a planning tool that enables instructors to estimate their student’s time commitment in a course based on the assigned learning activities. Designed to be used for courses that represent the blended learning spectrum from face-to-face to fully online, the tool calculates the total time commitment expected and allocates activities into scheduled (set by the institution, typically live meetings) and independent (at the discretion of the student within the parameters set by course deadlines) activities. We welcome you to bring your course syllabus and work through examples with us! This tool was developed over the summer by a project team from UBC Okanagan and TRU, and adapted from an open source tool created by Barre, Brown and Esarey (see below).
