Hours & Locations

Courses & Certificates

If you're looking to dive into a topic in more detail than a short workshop or consultation, consider signing up for one of CATL's instructor training courses! Courses vary in length and scope, from courses like LITE 301 that are conducted as a semester-long community of practice, to short, self-paced trainings that can be completed in a few hours, like LITE 120.

Teaching with Technology Certificate

Technology provides many possibilities for augmenting course development and day-to-day teaching. Learn how to use Canvas and other tools to enhance your teaching through three training courses, LITE 101: Modalities & Technologies, LITE 201: Course Design, and LITE 301: Course Revisions. Full-time instructors may qualify for a stipend upon completing the second and third courses.

Begin Your Journey

LITE 115 Course 

CATL offers short, self-paced "mini courses" designed to introduce instructors to a new teaching technology or concept. In LITE 115: Enhancing Course Videos with PlayPosit you'll learn how to build your first interactive PlayPosit "bulb" using pre-existing Kaltura or YouTube videos. Participants will also learn how to harness PlayPosit's powerful analytics features to track student engagement and identify areas where students need additional development.

Transform Your Videos

LITE 120 Course

Like LITE 115, LITE 120: Canvas Accessibility Training is a short, self-paced "mini course." This course serves as an introduction to accessibility in Canvas. Explore best practices for creating more inclusive and accessible digital teaching materials to reduce potential barriers to students' success. Participants will also learn how to interpret and address recommendations from the Rich Content Editor Accessibility Checker and the UDOIT Accessibility Checker.
