Current educational research recommends task-based instruction that allows students to engage in 'authentic activities' that mirror real-world situations. However, faculty training programs in learning technology often fail to follow this principle by separating training programs in technology options from the teaching and learning context in which the technology will be used. The instructional design of the New Classroom Series models the task-based instructional approach that faculty will use in their own courses and allows faculty to learn about technology options in conjunction with developing the online component for their own course. This paper will provide an overview of the instructional design model that provides the framework for online course creation and delivery at our university,a description of how the faculty series, The New Classroom, is delivered using this model and an overview of faculty response to the series. In addition, applications for future faculty programs are described.
