What is the Online Teaching Lab?

The Online Teaching Lab (OTL) is a fully asynchronous, completely self-paced online course about online teaching. Our community norms emphasize curiosity, kindness and compassion with oneself and with each other as we navigate together this unusual time in history.

In the OTL, participants will:

  • Participate in a course designed for interaction, not content delivery.
  • Create authentic products to use in their own courses.
  • Reflect on their learning in community with their faculty peers.
  • 
Receive feedback from OTL faculty mentors.
     

As part of the lab, participants will explore these topics:

  • Resilient course design.
  • Trauma-informed pedagogies.
  • Instructor presence & humanizing online learning.
  • Universal design for learning.
  • Video and online resources.
  • Social presence & student interaction.
  • Assessment & academic integrity.
  • Student reflection & metacognition.
