Teaching & Learning Online Course at KUMC

To help our faculty with teaching online, Teaching & Learning Technologies has developed an online course about Teaching & Learning Online at KUMC. This course focuses on important knowledge and skills needed for successful online teaching. It is targeted to faculty who are new to KUMC, new to online learning, or new to our Angel Learning System. Because it is delivered completely online, you will also better understand the perspective of an online student.

The course is organized into 6 units, each lasting a week:
  • Learning Theory and Instructional Design
  • Delivering Content
  • Communication
  • Assessment and Feedback
  • Interaction
  • Course Management and Procedures
Additionally, each unit demonstrates best practices by including a variety teaching methods, techniques, activities, and technologies. Participants are expected to actively participate by engaging in all discussions, completing all course activities, and submitting assignments. Active participation requires signing in to the course at least 2 times per week for a total of at least 2-3 hours of weekly course work. So, you will be investing 12-18 hours in this course.

The course starts Monday, October 3rd and ends Sunday, November 13th. If you are interested in participating in this course, please contact Dave Antonacci (dantonacci@kumc.edu).
