The Center for Teaching and Learning is pleased to announce the the next offering in our Pedagogy of Teaching and Learning Online (PTLO) workshop series. These workshops support faculty in developing, designing, and deploying an “online course” (100% online or e-course) or a “hybrid course” (75% of the course occurs online). Additionally, they may also be beneficial as instructional support for face-to-face courses that utilize various aspects of MUOnline.

See below to register.


Workshop Description

Pedagogy Matters (PM) is for faculty who are teaching, or will be teaching, online courses (e-courses or hybrids) in the coming academic year. The workshop focuses on building and strengthening the pedagogical infrastructure of your online course. PM begins with a half-day, face-to-face workshop, has four online modules spaced two weeks apart. During the face-to-face session, participants will develop or revise their course outcomes. Using these as the foundation for the remainder of the workshop, participants will then align unit outcomes, assessments, instructional materials and teaching and learning activities with their new course outcomes. At the conclusion of PM, participants will have a working syllabus that is faithful to the requirements of the institution and the essential requirements of Standards 2, 3, 4 and 5 of the Quality Matters rubric. Enrollment is limited to 20 participants and is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
