In this pre-service orientation, new UC San Diego Extension Instructors receive course development guidance and administrative support in advance of teaching their first Extension courses. Course development lessons focus on best practices for creating effective syllabi and designing lesson plans grounded in student-centered principles of active learning. Course development lessons also provide guidance in using UC San Diego Extension’s Blackboard (LMS) to enhance instruction. Administrative support lessons provide a sequenced list of policies and procedures to be completed before an instructor can begin teaching. In addition, administrative support lessons provide detailed instructions for using InstructorLink features, including course rosters, grade sheets, textbook requests, and reporting functions for instructors.
