What Works Well in Online Teaching – A Resource for Faculty

Over the last year, members of the Faculty Development Committee (a statewide standing committee of the Academic Affairs Council) have worked to create a document to promote reflection and dialogue about effective online teaching practices.

The document provides:

  • A description of effective practices specific to instruction delivered online
  • Guidance for new and experienced online or hybrid/blended instructors
  • An opportunity for reflection and dialogue about online teaching
  • An opportunity to align online courses or course components with shared standards of best practice and instructional design principles
