Online learning doesn’t have to be a pale imitation of “real” in-person learning. It’s a whole new way of interacting with learners. What if instead of a boring, predictable series of discussion question posts and assignments, your online courses were a dynamic journey that surprises and engages learners? This course will give faculty the confidence to create meaningful online learning experiences. Faculty have the skills to teach; we’ll show them how to transfer those skills to the online classroom – and it’s not about the technology!

Learning Objectives

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Create courses that wow learners with their interactivity and potent learning experiences
  • Reliably build online learning experiences that students love
  • Forge online connections to build the teacher-learner relationship as well as a peer community of practice
  • Apply key principles of online teaching to create social, cognitive and teaching presence
  • Avoid alienating or “turning off” your students to the whole online paradigm


Course participants meet in an interactive 2-2.5 hour video conference three times over the course of three days. Click on the date to see the session time in your time zone. Class video conference sessions are scheduled for:

Technology Requirements

This online course is delivered via Zoom, a web conferencing platform. All materials and course interactions will occur online. In order to participate fully, each participant must have:

  • Their own computer (tablets and mobile phones do not allow full engagement )
  • Reliable high-speed internet access (minimum 3 Mbps upload/download speed)

  • Webcam

Each individual – even those participants who are from the same institution – needs his or her own computer and computer headset (microphone and earphones). We highly encourage you to have a webcam to enrich our interactions.
