Online Teaching and Learning
Instructor: James Skidmore, University of Waterloo
Taught in English
The following course is being offered in Fall 2020.
This graduate seminar will explore the theory and practice of online teaching and its impact on student learning. Students will assess the efficacy of different approaches, analyze online courses currently on offer in higher education, learn about the role of technology in content delivery and community building, and develop their own approaches by designing their own online course in their discipline.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
