Orientation for New Online Instructors Seminar

Audience: New instructors facilitating courses designed for online delivery (section 081)

This asynchronous seminar guides new instructors through online course facilitation, including practical strategies to engage, connect with, and support students, and balance high-quality learning interactions with time constraints and workload.

The seminar will be available through LEARN. While the seminar is largely asynchronous, enabling you to work through the content and become familiar with your new course in your own time, there will be a Q and A forum, where Online Learning Consultants from the Centre for Extended Learning will be available to provide support and answer questions about facilitation and your course through the month of May.

Course open: May 5 to May 29

To register, please email Daniel Opperwall, including your WatIAM user id (if you have one), and the course you will be teaching in spring.

Online Instructor Community of Practice

Audience: course authors and instructors

CEL hosts an Online Instructor Community of Practice (CoP) session once a term for course authors and instructors. This is an informal opportunity to meet with other online instructors at Waterloo to discuss both the challenges and successes of online teaching. A theme or topic of discussion is selected for each session based on the interests expressed by the group and/or generated through the Online Instructor CoP listserv.

Upcoming Dates:  TBD
