Upcoming online course development boot camp
Online Course Development Boot Camp is an immersive-style workshop which will provide faculty with hands-on training and work time to develop an online course. At the end of the boot camp, you will have developed a significant portion of your course and earn a badge which applies toward an online course certification.
The next Online Boot Camp, May 20–24, 2019. Sessions will also be offered in the summer and in January 2020. Email the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning to reserve your spot.
Not available to attend any of those sessions? Contact the FCTL to schedule an appointment with one of our instructional designers. You can work with them in a self-paced model around your schedule and in most cases complete your course by the end of the semester.
