Self-paced Online Teaching Program & Seminars
The Online Teaching and Design Program is a practical, comprehensive program that will guide you through all aspects of designing, teaching, and building an online course. Nine modules present best practices, instructional strategies, and technology tools that you will apply in activities to develop and build your own online course. The program assumes participants have a basic working knowledge of Canvas. The self-paced section allows participants to access the Online Teaching and Design Canvas site and work through the content and activities at their own pace. All assessments and activities are optional; individualized feedback is not provided. Participants may elect to take part in optional Q&A sessions. Course completion requirements for this self-paced course include viewing all pages and activities and submitting all quizzes.
CEI has also adapted our 5-week cohort program Canvas sites into accessible resources so that you can draw from the ideas and materials at your own pace:
