Professional Development Opportunities

Instructors who want to create high-quality, engaging online learning experiences for their students can take advantage of OOL’s many professional development opportunities. We offer four types of development so instructors can select the formats, time commitments, and topics that work for them:

  • Online teaching courses—The online teaching courses provide the most robust training possible. Instructors who complete the courses can earn digital badges to showcase their learning.
  • Live workshops and webinars—For shorter, live interactions with OOL staff on a variety of topics, join us for the live events we offer each semester.
  • Online Teaching Professional Learning Community—Administered by OOL but directed by faculty, the Online Teaching PLC provides both live meetings and asynchronous communication space for those interested in all aspects of online teaching. Participate how you want when you can!
  • Asynchronous resources—For a more targeted and self-directed dive into some of the most important topics related to high-quality online teaching, visit our faculty resources page and learn at your own pace.
