Learn to Teach Online with Quickstart
USM has turned a corner over the last couple of years. In keeping with the current trend across the higher education universe, our online enrollments are booming and more and more courses are being offered in an online or blended format. We are growing and hiring more and more full and part time faculty. “Quick Start” was conceived as a way to introduce all faculty, but especially new faculty, to the fundamental skills involved in teaching online. The Center for Technology Enhanced Learning was charged with designing and delivering it. This course touches briefly upon the theory and research behind teaching and learning, but it is primarily a vehicle to help you design a technology-enhanced course while also picking up the skills of course communication, community-building and feedback.
