Description: In this fully online course, we will introduce you to current research and best practices for online teaching as well as showcase examples of successful teaching strategies for the online environment. Throughout the course you will work both independently and collaboratively with your peers to gain valuable online course transition experience and develop your own strategies for online teaching and learning. As a participant, you will learn both pedagogical aspects of teaching online as well as how to use and incorporate many of the tools available in the myCourses Learning Management System used at UMassD. The ultimate goal of the course is to have you begin planning, organizing, and building the online course you eventually plan to teach.
