Composition II: Logical Fallacies

College Course | Second Semester Freshmen

The following is an example of course instruction material developed for Eastfield College and UNT Dallas; this lecture is part of a second semester course design for first-year English Composition. These teaching slides have been created to accompany face-to-face, hybrid, and online courses. 
For traditional 16-week classes, two to three presentations are given per week totals, translating into a range of 32 to 48 components like this over the course of a semester, each spanning 55- to 120-minutes of facilitation.  
Regular instruction for full-time faculty at community colleges covers a minimum of 15 contact hours a week for a total of at least 240 contact hours per semester for regular face-to-face courses. Given that, on average, it takes at least 20-hours of instructional design to craft a 1-hour block of training, that factors into about 4,800 hours for a full load of teaching (five classes/semester) for five individual course preps. 
Using this metric, a single well-designed course prep covers 48 contact hours a semester (16-week), or 960-hours of instructional design work. For an online platform, that number increases to between 1,920 and 12,000 design hours per class per semester.
To date, I have created 14 course preps for traditional, 16-week classes (12,480 design hours). Additionally, I've produced compressed variations of those courses to fit 3-week, 4-week, 6-week, 8-week, and 12-week classes in face-to-face, hybrid, and online modalities.
