Course Description

Developed by FAES Academic Programs, this course prepares participants with diverse teaching interests to design and deliver a high-quality course in an asynchronous learning environment. During this seven-week course, we will introduce evidence-based educational principles that apply to both online and in-person courses, and we will learn specific approaches to putting these principles into practice in an online environment. Our best teaching practices course is for both new teachers and experienced instructors who are new to teaching online, as well as all instructors who want to improve the quality of their online courses. At the end of the course, you will be able to use best practices in adult learning to design and deliver your subject in an online environment, using a range of tools available to you through the Canvas learning management system.
