Best Practices in Online Teaching

Instructors who teach online or hybrid classes want to know how to design pedagogically effective courses. This workshop will summarize and synthesize research about the most effective practices in teaching learner-centered courses and point to Canvas tools that can help you implement engaging teaching strategies. Topics will include strategies and tools for planning sequenced assignments and activities and managing the course evaluation. The workshop will interest faculty who teach online or are interested in incorporating online components into their traditional courses. Bring your questions, ideas, and experiences to share.

By the end of this workshop, students will be able to:

  • Organize materials for your course in Canvas
  • Use Canvas to communicate with your students
  • Design collaborative learning activities by selecting tools such as Groups, Discussion Board, Wiki, Blogs, or Journal
  • Provide feedback to students with tools such as the rubric or quizzes


This workshop may be counted toward the Online Teaching concentration of the Achievement in Pedagogy badge, offered through the Graduate Student Teaching Initiative.
