The Center for Teaching & Learning is offering an eight-week hybrid workshop focusing on the development and implementation of hybrid courses (courses that blend online and face-to-face instruction) and fully online courses. Faculty from all academic disciplines are invited to apply by completing this form:
Please apply no later than December 23, 2018.
Selected participants will be notified by December 28, 2018.
No experience teaching online is necessary, but space is limited so we will give priority to participants who will teach at least one hybrid or online course in summer/fall 2019 and/or winter/spring 2020.
The eight-week workshop will orient participants to online pedagogies through both face-to-face and online synchronous and asynchronous work.
As participants in this workshop, faculty will:
- develop an online or hybrid course that will promote successful learning outcomes and provide a positive learning experience for students;
- demonstrate competency in using Blackboard as both learner and instructor;
- demonstrate competency in choosing and using digital tools for teaching online;
- design effective online learning activities that engage students in the learning process, and support the achievement of intended student learning outcomes;
- reflect on being both an online learner and teacher; and
- contribute to in-person and online class discussions about teaching and learning online.
The workshop will include one face-to-face session (Friday, February 1: 10am – 3pm), one synchronous online session (March 1: 11am to 1pm) and six asynchronous online sessions that will include individual and group work (February 15; March 15 and 29; April 12; and May 3 and 17). Workshop participants will also have access to sustained technical support and pedagogical advice from the Center for Teaching & Learning and receive a copy of the book, Minds Online, by Michelle Miller.
Upon successful completion of this intensive workshop (attendance at February 1 face-to-face session, March 1 synchronous online session, and completion of at least 90% of the workshop activities), participants will receive a Certificate of Completion and can choose one of the following:
- $800 stipend (paid as non-teaching adjunct salary in June 2019; workload restrictions apply)
- iPad Pro
- Microsoft Surface
