WORSHOP ON DESIGNING EFFECTIVE ONLINE COURSES
COURSE STARTS ON AUGUST 17, 2020
We had overwhelming demand (1,500+ faculty) who participated in the first offerings of Designing Effective Online Courses, an online workshop to support faculty and staff across the System in moving their courses to an online format. We are pleased to announce another session starting next Monday, August 17.
Registration is now open. The workshop is free, but space is limited, and registration is required. Learn more and register
Who Should Attend: This workshop will provide faculty and staff with information, tools, and experiences that will help them to be more successful—and more comfortable—teaching online.
When: The next session of this workshop begins on August 17. Based on feedback from previous participants, there will be a two-week and a four-week pacing of the course. Participants can finish the work at their own pace, but they are encouraged to complete the course within the two or four week time frames in order to take advantage of the opportunity to collaborate with other faculty members.
