May 2017 Online Teaching Academy
Faculty are invited to apply for the Online Teaching Academy, held May 15 to May 18, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the Brunswick campus (Location: TBD). The Online Teaching Academy focuses on online course development and instruction and best practices for online teaching. The facilitators are Dr. Lisa McNeal (eLearning), Dr. Charlsie Myers (Psychology), and Ms. Lee McKinley (Health Informatics). The facilitators will guide faculty through the stages of designing, assembling, teaching, and improving an online course.
This academy is divided into two parts: instruction and course review.
After participating in the four-day workshop, interested participants can receive a $500 stipend for developing an online course by the end of June (vetted by the workshop leaders).
Participants will learn skills and strategies for engaging online teaching and receive hands-on experience using Brightspace (D2L), Blackboard Collaborate, Respondus, Turnitin, Films on Demand, and other instructional technologies. The workshop leaders will model strategies that they use in their own online courses.
Please complete this short survey if you would like to participate in this faculty development opportunity. The Online Teaching Academy is limited to 15 participants. Faculty who participated in the Borderless Education Workshop in May 2016 may participate in the academy (without the stipend) but available spots are prioritized for new participants.
