Online Teaching and Learning Institute

Tuesday, 23 May, 2017

Faculty interested in teaching online are invited to register for the Reinert Center's Online Teaching and Learning Institute, which will be held on campus Tuesday, May 23 through Thursday, May 25, 2017.

This three-day intensive experience is aimed at SLU faculty with little-to-no experience teaching in the online format. Each day runs from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and participants must attend all three days.

OTLI features participant-driven workshops and conversations about creating collaborative learning environments online, online learning theory, and authentic and traditional assessment methods. The Institute gives participants many opportunities for individualized and group consultations with Reinert Center staff, in addition to providing faculty from across the University a chance to learn how other professors and disciplines approach online teaching and learning.

Each session of OTLI is capped at 12 participants to maintain the quality of individualized attention, as well as a high level of participant interaction. Registration priority will be given to those full-time or part-time teaching faculty members who are planning to teach an online course in Summer 2017, Fall 2017 or Spring 2018 and who have not attended a previous version of OTLI.

In each OTLI session, the aim is to create a group of faculty who represent a cross-section of different departments, schools and programs at Saint Louis University so as to foster an interdisciplinary cohort interested in exploring effective practices and pedagogy for teaching online.
