Best Practices in Online Teaching

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

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

  • Organize materials for your course in CourseWeb
  • Use CourseWeb to communicate with your students
  • Design collaborative learning activities by selecting tools such as Groups, Discussion Board, Wiki, Blog 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. For more information, contact
