Faculty Development works closely with Instructional Development at the Cyber Campus, to provide comprehensive support for online faculty.
In this library, you will find a wide range of resources to support your work as an online instructor, including supplemental teaching materials (tutorials, checklists, cheat-sheets, sample files, and more); a schedule of upcoming online workshops and links to recordings of past workshops; access to online training courses; and online teaching FAQ.

Online Teaching Coaches
During your first semester teaching online, you will be paired with an experienced online instructor who can field questions about the online environment. Your teaching coach will also look in on your class to offer helpful feedback. To request a teaching coach beyond your first semester, contact Instructional Development.
For general questions about teaching and learning not specific to the online environment (i.e., how to engage students or evaluate their work), contact Faculty Development. At your request, a Faculty Developer can also “visit” your class to share constructive, supportive and confidential feedback.
“Boot Camps” for New Instructors
Complete this required training before your first semester teaching online. “Boot Camps” can be done online, face-to-face (two full days), or in some combination thereof. For more information, contact Instructional Development.
Online Q&A Session & Workshops
Join fellow online teachers in a conversation with Instructional Development staff. Share tips and best practices, and get answers to your questions about teaching online. Sessions are offered several times during the semester. Visit the Online Teaching Library for more information.
Meet on campus with other faculty and attend sessions related to online teaching at Faculty Development’s Teaching EXPO (every fall) and Teaching Essentials Workshops (every spring).
Academic and ESL Support
Refer students who are struggling to succeed due to low academic performance or language issues.
Online Writing Lab
You may suggest or require that students get help with their writing, either online or in person at the Writing Lab.
