Throughout the year, TT&I hosts a variety of events to allow faculty explore the possibilities of various technology tools and how to effectively integrate technologies in teaching and learning.  These are invaluable opportunities to come together with your colleagues from around the Campus; collaborate and share your experiences.

Faculty Development Program: Empowering Online Teaching and Learning

“Empowering Online Teaching and Learning” is a four-week program intended to provide faculty with an overview of teaching and learning online, applicable for both online and hybrid courses. Facilitated by TTI’s Instructional Designers, this course will demand approximately 2-4 hours of participation over each of the four weeks. Participation in this program is highly recommended for all faculty members who will be teaching online or hybrid courses for the first time at Montclair State University.

Our next sessions will be offered fully online in Summer from 6/26/17 – 7/23/17 and Fall from 10/16/17-11/12/17.

Registration is now closed. Please consider our Fall cohort.

This program is conducted in Canvas and includes the following four weekly modules:

  • Introduction to Teaching and Learning Online
  • Approaches to Online Instruction
  • Online Community and Interaction
  • Online Learning Assessments

This course is considered the pedagogical track of our faculty development program (FDP). We also offer a technology track to strengthen your mastery of instructional technologies. This track includes foundational workshops, delivered both face-to-face and online.
Please find additional details about the Canvas workshops here.
