Synchronous Sessions


Throughout the summer the Office of Online Learning will offer two types of synchronous sessions: open Q&A sessions and best practices synchronous sessions. The open Q&A sessions will offer faculty who have watched the asynchronous sessions the opportunity to join the Office of Online Learning team to ask any questions they have about how to set up their course. The Synchronous Training for Online Teaching with Best Practices sessions will be live, interactive versions of the asynchronous sessions. They will occur over 3 half days (9 am - 12 pm). We strongly encourage you to sign up for the week that you can attend all three sessions. Signup is required for any sessions. Please click on the appropriate dates in the table below to be taken to the signup sheet for that day.
