Faculty Development

Get Up To Speed with Online Teaching (May)

Monday, May 4, 2020 - 10:00am to Friday, May 22, 2020 - 5:00pm

via Zoom (https://csun.zoom.us/j/92735471695)

We are currently closed but will re-open enrollment starting June 1st, 2020.

We are conscious that you may have low bandwidth during the month of May to learn about online teaching amidst the end of the semester. So this flexible program might be perfect for your needs.

CSUN faculty told us that they desire a hybrid program where they can learn on their own but have access to experts. So we designed it! This program combines live sessions and self-paced learning that covers best practices, techniques and tools to create content, facilitate and assess learning online.

Faculty Development, the Faculty Technology Center and the Tseng College Distance Learning team are organizing this three-part program with a combination of synchronous and asynchronous meeting times in the following date ranges:
