Remote Teaching Plus and Tips & Sips

Remote Teaching Plus (RT+)

Now that faculty have survived the emergency remote teaching transition of Spring and have more time to devote to the development of their fall courses, we offer this extensive summer program for faculty to use these upcoming months to prepare.

Remote Teaching Plus is an opportunity for faculty members to engage one-on-one with an instructional designer and receive dedicated instruction and feedback to produce a custom, organized remote teaching course shell. Over the course of a few meetings with an instructional designer, faculty will come away with a pedagogically sound course in Pilot based on best practices in instructional design and Quality Matters guidelines. Faculty will still be required to create their own content, but they will be able to utilize the instructional designer they worked with as a “coach” throughout the term.

We are currently at full capacity of 50 faculty, but a waitlist is available. If you're are interested, please email to be added to the list.

Summer Tips and Sips: Remote Teaching Happy Hour for Faculty

Led by Lisa Kenyon, Associate Professor, Biological Sciences and Faculty Director of Center for Teaching and Learning. Our summer theme is about moving forward and preparing for summer and/or fall remote teaching. This is a virtual safe space for faculty to grab a drink, get a snack, and drop in on a Collaborate Ultra session to chat. Each session will focus on a specific topic with a brief 10 minute presentation, followed by group discussion and sharing of ideas. The tips and sips session topic for May 27th, 4-5pm is Active Learning in Online Classes. Additional topics for the summer will be posted soon.
