Across a two-week session, you’ll work asynchronously (independently) in a CarmenCanvas course, receiving regular feedback from an instructor and peers. 

Introduction to Teaching Online provides a variety of resources, including readings and videos, as well as opportunities to interact with content and peers through activities and discussion. Learn essential elements of online teaching with a focus on using evidence-based practices, and leave with a set of concrete next steps and resources to support your future online teaching.  

Note: This course is a 10-hour time commitment, including readings and assignments that are due on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of each week. You must register to be added to the Carmen course.
