Online Teaching Community
A virtual faculty professional learning community.
The purpose of the Online Teaching Community is to share creative teaching ideas, best practices and policies, and ideas for research in online teaching. The group is interaction based and the content we discuss is up to its members—so bring your questions and issues and the tips and tricks you’ve learned along the way.
How We Meet
To honor the fact that this is about “online” teaching and to make this accessible to faculty who are out of state, we offer the meeting online. We use WebEx conferencing and members join by video or audio from wherever they can. It is informal, so eating lunch is encouraged!
Why We Meet
In each meeting, the aim is to discuss any questions and issues group members bring to the table that week (~75% of the time), as well as to provide some information on specific topics of interest to group members raised in prior meetings (~25% of the meeting). We share resources and have a listserv for accessing shared documents.
