Supporting Faculty in Developing Online Course Proficiencies

Online courses are now an integral part of most institutions' options for students to complete academic requirements. In this short course, we examined four areas directly aligned with online teaching proficiency: readiness for teaching online, online course competencies, stages of adoption, and models of supporting faculty development. Participants shared institutional challenges and strategies that have been used to overcome these issues.

NOTE: Participants were asked to complete assignments in between the course segments that support the learning objectives stated below and received feedback and constructive critique from the course facilitator on how to improve and shape their work.
