Hybrid & Online Teaching Institute
The Office for Teaching & Learning offers the Hybrid & Online Teaching Institute in May. The institute is designed to help instructors prepare to teach in a hybrid or online environment with a strong foundation of hybrid and online course design principles and best practices. This is a hybrid learning opportunity with two face-to-face meetings and a week in between in which to develop and post course materials in an online environment.
In the institute, you will…
- Review best practices for hybrid and online teaching
- Discuss various frameworks for designing hybrid and online courses
- Identify and practice the basic operations and features of a Canvas classroom from both student and instructor perspectives
- Explore strategies that emphasize active learning and student engagement in hybrid and online environments

"The structure was great. From working through the modules between sessions (which was very well organized and set up a perfect amount of work) to having support at the beginning and feedback at the end, all this was very helpful."
