Did you know that Teaching and Learning Technologies (TLT) facilitates a training program for faculty teaching online? The program provides resources and training to faculty while they modify their face-to-face course for the online environment.

Focus

The focus is on acquiring skills critical to online teaching through application activities, pedagogical exploration, and technology mastery.

Training Topics

Topics covered include: syllabus construction, writing effective quiz questions, best practices, assessment, integrating web and library resources, time management, communication, group activities, using multimedia, and rubrics.

Synchronous and Asynchronous

The Online Course Development Working Groups (OCDWGs) are casual conversations over lunch sharing course progress. The Peer Mentoring program is facilitated by faculty who taught online and modified their face-2-face course based upon their online teaching experience. Mentors are available for individual conversations about technology tools, activities, syllabus construction, Moodle and assessment. Both the pedagogy of teaching online and Moodle training are combined into this comprehensive training program.

Support

Online faculty are supported by instructional technologists, multimedia developers, videographers, and e-learning specialists as they modify their course for the virtual environment. This supportive team creates video and multimedia tools for course engagement and trains faculty in technologies for course integration, i.e., screencasting, blogs, and PowerPoint.

TLT is ready and willing to answer questions about the Summer Online program. If you’re interested in teaching online, please contact Cheri Crabb for more information.
