Faculty developing a new online course or making improvements to a current online course are invited to apply to the 2017-18 TeachOnline@UW program. TeachOnline@UW is a faculty learning community that explores research-based best practices for designing and teaching online courses. Stipends are provided based on participation.
During the 2016-17 academic year, nine faculty from across the UW-Madison School of Education participated in the program. Putting themselves in the shoes of online students, they learned strategies to plan, design, and facilitate their online courses. Faculty and staff contributions were recognized on Monday, April 24th with a culmination celebration.
MERIT’s Instructional Designer Maria Widmer served as a facilitator for the group and is available to School of Education faculty for online course consultations.
