Workshop to Present Ways Duke Faculty Can Try Online Teaching

Duke instructors can learn how to try online teaching in a workshop offered by staff from the Center for Instructional Technology (CIT) and Online Duke. The workshop, “3 Easy Ways to Try Online Teaching”  is part of the Duke University Office of Information Technology’s Learn IT @ Lunch series and will be held at noon on September 21 in The Edge Workshop Room on West Campus.

The workshop will present three easy ways instructors can use online technology and approaches readily available at Duke to improve student engagement, foster deeper learning and connect students on campus with the rest of the world. In the last four years, Online Duke and CIT have worked with over 70 faculty on 150 online education projects ranging from online practice exercises to globally-taught online courses.

“Faculty we have worked with across Duke find that online teaching offers them unique opportunities,” said Willie Williamson, an online course builder at Online Duke and one of the workshop presenters. “This workshop is designed to show faculty that you don’t have to do a big project to try something online and get those benefits.”

Attendees will leave the session with ideas as well as information about resources on campus that can help them do their first online teaching activity.

No pre-registration is required for the workshop. Attendees are encouraged to bring a brown bag lunch. For more information, visit the Learn IT @ Lunch website.
