Online Pedagogy Series

Join us for a series of Zoom sessions on teaching online

In response to the shift from face-to-face to online instruction, the Office of Teaching and Learning and the Vice Dean initiated an Online Pedagogy Seminar series. The goal of the series is to introduce instructors to creative and participatory approaches to online teaching, and to generate a space for dialogue and learning.  To date we have run the sessions that are listed below and we will be on a brief hiatus until the spring, when we resume.

We are lucky to have outstanding online educators in our midst, and are pleased they are willing to share their expertise with us. These presentations will be followed by time for conversation and questions.

To get access to the D2L shell for the course and the Zoom sessions, please email
The D2L shell for the series still has presentation materials and further readings on the previous sessions. If you have suggestions or requests for other topics, please email us.
