CTL: Guide to Teaching Online and Workshops
July 20, 2020
With the announcement that most classes will be held online this Fall, the Center for Teaching and Learning is pleased to introduce additional resources and programming that will help get us ready.
- Please visit our updated Teaching Online Course Prep Guide, which breaks down how to develop an online course over 4 weeks.
- Each week we offer workshops that align with topics covered in the Guide.
- Faculty are welcomed and encouraged to schedule a one-on-one consult to meet with us to discuss their courses and receive feedback.
Some things to keep in mind:
- All part-time and full-time faculty are welcome to participate, even if they are not confirmed to teach in the Fall. Staff are welcome to attend our workshops too.
- Should a cohort of faculty in your department want to meet with our staff as a group to delve into any of the topics raised by the guide, please do not hesitate to reach out.
- Faculty can access recordings of select previous workshops.
- In the coming weeks, we anticipate announcing more workshops led by BCTC that focus on topics such as Blackboard.
- Stay tuned for additional video and multimedia resources!
Events Upcoming this Week
Wednesday, July 22 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Want to get started working on your course for the Fall? Join us in Session I – Getting Started on your Unit of this hands-on workshop series that gives you the chance to explore, build, and reflect on (re)designing a unit in your course. Participants will be asked to complete some asynchronous pre-work (designed to take less than 30 minutes) so that you are ready to maximize the time you spend in the 90-minute synchronous workshop sessions.This three-part workshop series is facilitated by Allison Lehr Samuels and Pamela Thielman.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting and pre-work details.
July 23 @ 11:00 am – 12:15 pm
This workshop presents a range of “asynchronous” and “synchronous” examples of assignments and activities that build community in an online class. An interactive discussion then guides faculty through translating some of the ways they usually build classroom community in person into an online format.
