OL 2000: Essentials of Online Teaching

  • 09/09/2019 - 10/14/2019

OL 2000 provides all online teachers with a solid foundation to practice effective online teaching. It is designed as a basic starting point to embark on the Online Teaching Pathways. Activities focus on discussion management, assessment techniques, developing learning activities, reflective practice, and planning for future development and community building.

Designed to introduce you to the essentials of online teaching and learning, this course is “asynchronous,” meaning that while there will be assignments due at specific times during each week, you can log on and learn according to your schedule. There will be no “synchronous” meetings during OL 2000.
