Learn about online teaching and resources to support online course development

Are you thinking about teaching an online course?  Do you need more information about how an online course works, what it looks like, how to get started, how to find support?

Come learn with us at the CALS Online Teaching Workshops
Oct 4 and Oct 11, 3:00pm-4:30pm, location TBA
Sponsored by CALS Academic Affairs and Division of Continuing Studies (DCS)

These workshops are intended for any instructors and faculty with an interest in learning more about online courses and teaching.  All levels of knowledge and interest in online courses are welcome.

Topics will include:

  • What are best practices for quality online learning environments?
  • Where on campus can I get support in designing and implementing my online class?
  • Who can help me with instructional design of my online course?
  • How can instructors engage with students in an online format?
  • How much time does it take to design an online course?
  • Who can help me with the technical aspects of getting my course online?
  • How much time does it take to teach an online course?

Participants will be invited to enroll in a sample online module after the first workshop to experience an online course environment as a student.  The second discussion-based workshop will focus on questions related to those experiences, showcase an online course, and highlight online technology and tools. Feel free to attend either or both information sessions.

If you would like to attend, please RSVP by filling out this form.  RSVP is requested to help with planning, but is not required.
