UMOnline is piloting a new online resource on engaging teaching practices, which offers an introduction to research on how students learn, clear guidelines for making your courses accessible to all students, and practical strategies for engaging students throughout the semester.
The course was created by Morgen Alwell, Teaching and Learning, and Marlene Zentz, Jo Costello, and Robert Squires from UMOnline. While the course was designed for new faculty and graduate instructors, it offers ideas and resources to anyone engaged in the work of teaching and learning. It also provides critical information on making your courses accessible to all learners. You can self-enroll in Engaging Teaching Practices and have the option to earn a Certificate of Completion for the course.
This training will acquaint you with how to use a web-based meeting tool to enhance the interactivity of your online course for real-time and recorded meetings and presentations, as well as virtual office hours. Participants will develop navigation and facilitation skills and learn to set up sessions for your online course or supplement. Virtual Location.
