Theory & Practice of Online Teaching

A short course for graduate students and postdocs

Did you teach or take classes online in the spring? Would you like to know more about the theory and practice of effective teaching online? In this 4-session short course, we will examine the challenges and the opportunities that the online environment presents for student learning. We will discuss the research on teaching and learning online, share best practices for teaching, and practice these skills with fellow participants. You will come away from the program with more confidence in your teaching and with samples of online teaching materials to use on the job market. The Zoom meetings, asynchronous work, and materials development will require about 12 hours of work. Join our community and turn your recent experience with online teaching and learning into a strength on the job market. This program is open to any graduate student or postdoc, whether you have taught online or not. Participants will need to commit to all four sessions. Register via a Google Form.
