Online Faculty Development Courses & Community of Practice
Courses provide in-depth coverage of a specific teaching and learning topic. Courses typically consist of multiple learning modules containing individual lessons and activities.
What Faculty Are Saying About Us...
"Thank you for the excellent model of an online course. This attention to tone is often not present from other professional learning experiences I have had. The design that sets a sense of community is not easily created. I felt welcomed every time I entered the course and encouraged and invited me to learn."
-COOL 2020 Participant
"Navigating the remote learning session now and want to extend my gratitude for this, it has been most helpful and truly engaging. Your passion is amazing and your energy equally so. I've been teaching in Moodle for many years now, but always appreciate new ideas, and literally within 10 minutes I learned a few new tricks. "
-2020 Workshop Participant
"The passion and knowledge of the facilitators made the whole experience energizing. They made all the "campers" feel like we were colleagues and collaborators, not just students. Everything taught in theory was modeled in practice, and I believe both novice online instructors as well as seasoned veterans benefited from the content. "
