This five-week pilot program provided a basic toolkit for online teaching at the graduate level such as effective course design, assessment, class preparation, grading and feedback, creating a community of student learners, and course management. Participants joined an online learning community guided by Dr. Laine Scales and Dr. Becky Parton.

Participants invested at least 4-5 hours each of the five weeks to explore best practices and created tools for their courses while receiving feedback from peers and facilitators. A scheduled one-hour synchronous session each week provided opportunities for discussion.
