The Online Teaching Fellows Program
The Online Teaching Fellows program was created to support online faculty members as they strive to make their online courses engaging, rewarding and challenging for students. Fellows are chosen every semester in one of two categories - New Online Faculty and Experienced Online Faculty. Both groups of fellows are offered opportunities to learn more about online course design, student motivation and engagement in the online format, and technology to enhance learning.
