Teaching Effectively Online Program

Now accepting applications!

Teaching Effectively Online (TEO) prepares faculty to teach online by exploring research-based best practices for designing courses, providing practical experience with a variety of tools, and perhaps most importantly, by providing faculty the change in perspective—teachers become students, a shift that is regularly described as game-changing.

TEO is a four-week, cohort-based, 100% online course. The course format models practices that promote student engagement and retention in online courses. The course is delivered in Blackboard, and the experience of being students in the course gives faculty a more nuanced understanding of how Blackboard “thinks.” Throughout TEO, we will use different Blackboard tools so that participants can get a sense of which ones will work best to meet the goals for their assignments.

The next session will be held Jan 30 - Feb 26, 2018. For more information and to apply (by Dec 8, 2017), please visit us online.
