Did you know that over 350 students participated in summer session I online courses? Not one online course had to be canceled this summer due to low enrollment—students enrolled with very minimal on-campus advertising.
Summer online courses give both students and faculty the flexibility and mobility to pursue other projects while still teaching and learning.
If you’re interested in developing and/or teaching an online or hybrid course, we at CAT invite you to:
- Discuss your idea with the Distance Education Coordinator (Yours Truly x7692) in CAT who will assist you. Required
- Complete the Quality Matters online introductory course. Required
- Attend the CAT-sponsored FaCTS Panel presentation on Thursday October 10, 2013 at 12:15pm (lunch included). Recipients of this year’s FaCTS (Mellon foundation) grants will share with you their successes and suggestions for creating and teaching online courses. Optional but recommended
- Complete CAT’s Online Faculty Development Course (funded by Mellon FaCTS initiative and available during the fall semester). Optional but recommended
- Complete additional Blackboard training offered by CAT. Optional but recommended
Pleaseo contact me for more information—I’m looking forward to meeting and working with Xavier’s excellent faculty and staff!
P.S. "8 Lessons Learned from Teaching Online" is a short video which I hope will give you food for thought.
