Online Faculty Development is always looking for Penn State faculty who have demonstrated excellence in online teaching to instruct OL courses and work with us on other opportunities such as webinars as our program evolves and grows year on year.
OL instructors are a critical part of our mission to support online faculty throughout their careers. Here’s why: faculty in OL courses will be looking to see if the teaching reflects what they are learning. If they learn from the best, and they embrace the skills and understandings in the course content, we’ve done a great service to them and their online students. In short, OL instructors exemplify the competencies the courses seek to teach.
If you are wondering how to begin the process and work with our team, start by reviewing the OL Instructor Handbook to see if this is something that you are interested in doing. We will let you know what opportunities we have available and work on finding a place for you to work with us pending a review.
At the end of the Handbook you will find a link that 1) confirms your willingness to follow these guidelines, meet the expectations, and fulfill your responsibilities as an OL instructor and 2) asks for demographic information for our records.
Thank you so much for your interest in teaching for us.
