Teaching Online Seminar (TOL6100)

 

The seminar is open to all UNF faculty, and preference is given to:

  • Full-time, tenured, or tenure-track applicants
  • Faculty who teach in programs transitioning  to distance-learning delivery
  • Applicants who have not previously participated in the seminar


Seminar Structure
The goal of TOL6100 is to prepare instructors to develop and deliver high-quality distance learning. In order to meet that goal, instructors need quality training on common pedagogical, logistical, and technological strategies. This intensive seminar covers pedagogy, course design, instructional strategies, communication strategies, and online assessment.  The prerequisite course TOL 4100 Blackboard Online Workshop (online) must be completed prior to the start date of the TOL 6100 course.

 

TOL6100 is offered in a hybrid format that includes a face-to-face kickoff day, five online modules, a face-to-face roundtable discussion (half day), and face-to-face culminating presentation day.  Throughout the seminar, participants will participate in individual instructional design consultations - including graphic and media development support.   Faculty may apply for one of two cohorts that will run during Spring and Summer 2015.
