Teaching the Online/Hybrid Course

This 2-week workshop focuses on recognizing and adapting to the unique requirements of the online learning environment. We will cover how to prepare your course, adapt your assessment plan, and engage your students while still meeting the learning outcomes for your course. During each week, you will work through 3 modules of content on your own. Then at the end of each week, there is an opportunity to put your learning into practice and receive feedback from the facilitators and your peers as you prepare your course for online and hybrid learning.

This course is available only to community members with Carroll University email addresses.

Teaching in Mixed Modalities: Student Engagement

Teaching students who are in various locations prompts us to think differently about when and how learning happens. This module helps you think about how your students can be engaged while making their learning visible, regardless of where they are. The module addresses how to prioritize flexibility in learning while deprioritizing the setting, how to develop engaging activities that align with your learning outcomes, and how to layer in the added complexity of teaching and learning across modalities. By the end of this module you will have created a plan for a discussion or a group activity, enabling you to experiment with a mixed modality strategy right away. 

This course is available to the public. CU community members have the option, from within the module, of sharing their work with Teaching Commons staff for feedback.
