The United Board for Christian Higher Education in Asia (United Board) is offering a faculty development opportunity through the Adaptive Design for Learning (ADL) online course offered by Ateneo de Manila University’s Institute for the Science and Art of Learning and Teaching. The ADL online course for institutions in the United Board network will be on September 1 – November 30, 2021.
ADL is an online certificate course for educators who are preparing for online teaching – e.g., designing a new online course or redesigning an old course for online teaching. It aligns with the main objectives of the Whole Person Education Academy (WPEA), i.e., facilitating whole-person learning and teaching and designing a person-centric learning environment. The course includes six asynchronous modules and five synchronous webinars. Course takers are expected to participate in discussion boards and submit individual assessments and projects, including a course syllabus and 2-3 modules on an online platform. After the completion of the ADL course, course takers are expected to submit reflections and action plans to the United Board.
The United Board will cover the ADL course fee for the selected applicants. Selection will be based on the need and purpose of educators and their institutions and the quality of the application.
The online application process is now open at https://forms.gle/emFidjiYqLebdPQR9 with the deadline on May 31, 2021 (Monday). Shortlisted applicants will be invited for an interview in June–July.
