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
