Online Facilitation Fundamentals (Level 2)


The Online Facilitation Fundamentals course focuses on increasing student engagement and facilitating activities in online and hybrid courses. This course will help you develop a working understanding of successful online teaching strategies that you can apply in your own digital classroom. You will learn about effective online teaching practices, their relationship to different technologies, and how to combine these to maximize student engagement in your online course. You will also get to progressively design and reflect upon your own online learning experiences as part of a cohort of fellow instructors and experienced facilitators.

Upcoming Sessions

We plan to run an online, intensive, two-week cohort of this program during the following dates. Participants can anticipate dedicating up to 20 hours of work per week.  

  • Monday, January 9, 2023 - Sunday, January 22, 2023

Participants who complete all course deliverables are eligible for a Completion Letter.  Faculty who complete this program will also be eligible for a $500 stipend.

Prerequisite: This program builds upon the Canvas Course Design Foundations curriculum. Only faculty who have completed that program (or its equivalent) are eligible. If you have not completed it, we are also planning cohorts of it this summer, with an equivalent stipend. We encourage you to register for that program, instead.
