Learn how to develop a workshop for online audiences, and get the chance to pilot your workshop for the CIRTL Network, in this intensive 9-week practicum.

This course draws on teaching and learning research as well as the CIRTL Network’s experience providing online programming to teach participants how they can use the online environment to provide students with a unique experience that in-person workshops cannot replicate. This community will work intensively together over nine weeks to learn and practice synchronous online teaching through structured observations, practice sessions, and peer review and feedback. The capstone proposal for an online workshop will be reviewed by CIRTL and qualifying events will run on the Network in a future semester.

Students who complete this course will be able to:

  • Identify the different opportunities available in in-person and online synchronous classrooms.
  • Describe and implement active learning strategies effective for the online classroom.
  • Develop online teaching lesson plans.
  • Participate in a cross-Network learning community of developing online instructors, able to offer peer feedback through observation and on written teaching materials.

Previous experience facilitating teaching development workshops is a prerequisite for enrollment in this course. Registrants will be redirected to a brief application to confirm their required experience. (Please contact chen.christopher “at” for more info.)
