What Is the Online Teaching Lab?

The Online Teaching Lab (OTL) is a fully (asynchronous) online course about online teaching, and our community norms emphasize curiosity, kindness and compassion with oneself and with each other as we navigate together this unusual time in history.

In the OTL, participants will:

  • Participate in a course designed for interaction, not content delivery
  • Create authentic products to use in their own courses
  • Reflect on their learning with peers to create a meaningful learning community
  • Receive timely feedback from faculty mentors who have studied evidence-based best practices in online teaching and learning

As part of the lab, participants will explore these topics:

  • Resilient course design
  • Trauma-informed pedagogies
  • Instructor presence & humanizing online learning
  • Universal design for learning
  • Video and online resources
  • Social presence & student interaction
  • Assessment & academic integrity
  • Student reflection & metacognition
