Active Learning Online

Two-weeks online

This two-week workshop is developed specifically for CapU faculty interested in complementing or rethinking a course with active learning activities online. The course emphasizes the value of collaboration with peers online, and models active learning examples in order to facilitate understanding and reflection of the online learner experience. Participants will draw upon existing teaching experience as they experiment with a practical learning activity of their own choice online and gain feedback from peers. Expect to spend 8-10 hours per week on the workshop.

The Centre for Teaching Excellence (CTE) fosters excellence, innovation, and collaboration in teaching and learning by supporting faculty and staff through programming, mentoring, professional development opportunities, and research on effective teaching.
