Online Instruction: Pedagogy and Practice

This seven-week hybrid class will give you the opportunity to hone your online instruction strategies. This class takes a deeper dive into the mechanics behind planning an engaging, interactive, and student centered online class. We’ll cover topics like active learning, formative and summative assessments, and instructor presence. We’ll spend the in-person sessions mapping our courses and sharing ideas with each other.

The course is designed for instructors of all skill levels, from the new instructor to someone who has been teaching for a while and wants an infusion of new ideas and streamlined strategies. Even if you are not teaching fully online course, you are welcome to enroll. Many of the instructors in the previous cohort were surprised by how much information from the course worked in their face-to-face classes, too.

  • Design lessons, activities, lectures, and case studies that engage students and create active participation in an online classroom environment.
