Call for Participation

Have a course in need of redesign? Need help delivering online or hybrid content to students? Come join this FLC!Whether you’ve been teaching online or hybrid courses for several years, or are new to teaching hybrid or online, all levels of expertise are welcome to join our Online and Hybrid Teaching Faculty Learning Community. We hope this learning community will provide a venue for faculty-led dialogue and sharing collective expertise regarding online/hybrid instruction to help you further strengthen your virtual teaching. The project is designed to help you create, reflect on, or redesign an online or hybrid course, and increase your familiarity with the Quality Teaching and Learning (QLT) instrument, which is a carefully developed and empirically-based standards and rubric for virtual courses. Our discussions will also be grounded in access and equity-related issues that impact students and teaching and learning.

The goals of the FLC include:

  • Explore pedagogies associated with online/hybrid teaching and learning
  • Provide a wide knowledge of evidence-based practices in online/hybrid teaching
  • Support new and experienced online/hybrid faculty through dialogue and samples
  • Identify emerging technological needs to support online/hybrid teaching and learning
  • Improve the quality of online/hybrid courses, including attention to equity issues
  • Share collective expertise across disciplines

Participants in the Faculty Learning Community should be willing to commit to:

  • Attend at least 80% of the scheduled FLC activities and meetings (weekly/bi-weekly)
  • Present at the culminating showcase event in late fall or early spring.
  • Active work, sharing of progress, and mutual accountability
