teaching online

If you plan to teach an online or hybrid class, you are required to complete the Online/Hybrid Instructor Training. Training has been divided into three areas and while it must be completed in order, it does not need to be completed during the same cycle of instruction.

Phase 1 - Canvas Basics

This session is open to everyone, not just those who want to teach online or hybrid. This session covers the basics of using Canvas, such as how to load a syllabus, set notifications and create assignments.

Phase 2 - Pedagogy, Policy and Design This session will cover UM policies and practices for online and hybrid courses, the pedagogy of online coursework and the proper design techniques for online and hybrid courses.
Phase 3 - Building Your Course This phase requires participation in previous two phases, which may have been completed prior to this semester. This is the final phase of training and is strictly the process of building your online course with various items and strategies to indicate mastery of the process.
