Good teaching is good teaching, whether it happens in courses that are face-to-face, web-facilitated, hybrid or fully online. The difference in teaching online is that digital components require careful planning, and fully-online courses take a considerable amount of time to produce the kind of high-touch student learning experience we expect at Seattle University. Below are some ways you can explore teaching online through CDLI.
All online courses (synchronous or asynchronous) must pass CDLI review in order to be offered beginning in Fall quarter 2023. If you're interested in developing a new online course, start here.
If you plan to design a fully online or hybrid course, consider joining this community of practice that meets once a week for one quarter.
Faculty are sometimes assigned to teach a fully online course that was designed and certified by another instructor. We call this process “course facilitation.” Teaching an online course built by another faculty member can sometimes require a bit of training and orientation, so CDLI is here to help.
If you would just like to learn a little more about teaching online, we have a variety of workshops and consultations that happen frequently, virtually or in our lab.
