Online Teaching Fellowship
Online Teaching Fellows participate in a rigorous, highly interactive virtual fellowship of Professors. The goal of this program is to remain on the cutting edge of 21st century technological tools, resources, and online pedagogy. This intensive training program focuses upon excellence in online teaching and learning and staying 'current' with the most effective teaching practices for both online and blended learning environments. Additionally, fellowship participants must also demonstrate their commitment and willingness to share their expertise through the mentoring of other faculty in online course development and delivery.
The OTF creates a community of practitioners that:
o support faculty efforts to enhance familiarity and facility with blended and online learning.
o support faculty innovation online to enhance student learning.
o engage faculty as online learners to develop a community of practice who value and appreciate student experiences with technology.
o develop a cadre of motivated, involved faculty willing to mentor future Online Fellows– to build a self-sustaining faculty mentoring program for online and blended teaching.
