Satisfies prerequisite toward the Delta Certificate: Course

The Online Teaching Practicum is a unique opportunity for future faculty who lead teaching workshops at their local institutions to prepare and propose to teach a one- or two -part online workshop for the national CIRTL Cross-Network Learning Community (CNLC).

Previous experience facilitating teaching development workshops is a prerequisite for enrollment in this course. (Please contact chen.christopher@columbia.edu for more info.)

Participants in the course will focus on how to leverage the online environment to offer their students a unique experience that would otherwise be difficult to produce in the in-person classroom by drawing on the research of teaching and learning and the vast experience of facilitating online synchronous events of the CIRTL Network. This community will work intensively together over 9 weeks to learn and practice synchronous online teaching through structured observations, practice sessions, and peer review and feedback. The capstone proposal for an online event will be reviewed by CIRTL and qualifying events will run on the Network in Spring 2020.

Registration & Enrollment

This course is limited to 12 participants. Early registration for CIRTL members only is open from April 23 through May 7. Regular registration runs from May 8 through May 24 at 12PM CT. STEM/SBE grad students and postdocs from CIRTL institutions receive priority.
