The Online Teaching Institute is a fully online opportunity in which participants work together with support on the design of an online course. Throughout the Institute, graduate students new to teaching online will have the opportunity to devise, create, and reflect on the different components of an online course. At the same time, participants with online teaching experience may work through the modules of the Institute to further reflect on their existing or previously taught online courses.

The Institute will offer a mixture of synchronous and asynchronous opportunities for the cohort to learn together. Following Institute’s virtual kick-off meeting, and for two weeks, graduate students will work through the Institute’s modules on their own time while participating as desired in collaborative online discussions to support their work. Participants will also have the opportunity to meet with LITS consultants to support hands-on development of their online, hybrid, and blended courses. On the last day of the Institute, participants meet up virtually to share experiences, impressions, and next steps with their colleagues and to celebrate the course development work they've completed.
Collaborative online discussions and sessions generally include topics such as building community online, accessibility and assistive technology, incorporating the library into an online or hybrid course, and sessions on learning technologies such as Moodle, Panopto and Zoom.
