The Online Teaching Academy offers training and support for instructors that will be teaching online during the interim or Summer sessions. Participating faculty will take a journey, touching on everything from online course syllabus development to course site design and maximizing student engagement in a virtual setting. After working through the modules, participants submit a 1-2 page reflection composed of synthesized prompts completed during the modules. Both synchronous and asynchronous components are included in this 3-day academy.
The Just Course Design module includes literature-based frameworks and tools for social justice course design as well as sample syllabi, assignments, assessment recommendations, classroom management considerations, and reflection questions to consider in each section. After working through the module, participants submit a 1-page summary reflection that responds to the questions that are embedded throughout to further their course design efforts. The module is designed to be flexible and completed at any point in time, and does not need to be completed in one sitting.
