We offer a variety of workshops online via Zoom to assist you with designing and delivering your courses and the original content they contain.
Requirements for Teaching Online, Hybrid, & Web-Enhanced Courses
The college requires faculty to complete training before teaching online. Throughout the year, TEL delivers 2 ½-day and five-week “Teaching with Brightspace” workshops that provide this training. Either workshop opportunity will satisfy requirements for faculty wishing to teach a fully online or hybrid course.
TEL workshops are designed to help you make the most of our Brightspace learning management system. They provide you with hands-on experience in using virtually all of the tools that Brightspace has to offer, along with pedagogical reasons for when and why these tools should be used.
