e-Learning offers workshops for faculty

Fri Apr 10, 2020 at 02:17 PM

e-Learning and Instructional Support has identified several areas in which faculty have expressed the need for more support. The instructional designers are offering several online training sessions and a brand new Self-Paced Online Teaching Workshop to help all faculty get the most out of teaching remotely. 

NEW Self-Paced Online Teaching Workshop

The Self-Paced Online Teaching Workshop is an on-demand course intended to help faculty who need to become prepared to teach online quickly. You can start it at any time and complete it at your own pace. On average, the workshop will take about four hours to complete. By the end of the workshop, you should feel prepared to design and facilitate the basics of a quality fully-online course.
