Graduate students are invited to attend a six-week online training on how to design online courses.
The Online College Teaching Series (OCTS) takes participants through the main steps of course planning and development and introduces the pedagogical approaches, design principles, and technological tools that facilitate online learning. This training includes online hands-on learning activities and active weekly discussions.
As they progress through this training, graduate students will:
- develop their online teaching skills
- develop some facility with Canvas (technology)
- experience what it is like to be an online learner
- engage with experienced instructional designers in the discussion forums
