Introduction to Psychology Online: An Opportunity to Teach, An Opportunity to Learn

Dr. Elizabeth Yost Hammer

by Dr. Elizabeth Yost Hammer

Recently Xavier's administration charged the Center for the Advancement of Teaching (CAT) with supporting faculty who are teaching online or blended courses. As a CAT staff we begin to do a lot of reading on the topic. However, I felt like I needed to "get in the trenches" and actually teach an online course to take my understanding to the next level. So, to advance my own professional development, I am teaching Introduction to Psychology (PSYC 1010) fully online in Summer Session 2. I still have many decisions to make about the course design, and I look forward to working with and learning from my FaCTS colleagues.
