Creating a Welcoming Online Environment
Aug 31 – Sep 14 all-day

This online faculty mini-course will help both seasoned and not-so-seasoned online faculty create an easy-to-navigate virtual space. We will explore ways to encourage collegiality, openness, community building, and a sense of shared journey.

Our online faculty mini-courses are two-week dives into different topics central to teaching online and hybrid classes. Courses are designed to be flexible and exploratory. Through interactions with peers and curated resources, faculty will share, develop, and receive feedback on ideas about course design in digital spaces. Participating in the course will also help faculty get a feel for what it’s like to be a student in hybrid and online classes, an invaluable perspective when designing and teaching online classes.

Here is how the online mini-courses work:

  • Courses will be hosted in Brightspace, and will use integrated tools we think are great.
  • Courses will be active for two weeks and will require a 30-minute to two-hour time commitment to get the most from them.
  • Activities are asynchronous, with optional synchronous meetings.
