Online Teaching Pedagogy


This Online Teaching Pedagogy training course is offered fully online, and is open only to Canvas-trained Delta College faculty — January 6 – 26, 2020.



Making the transition from teaching in the traditional classroom setting to the online environment often fills instructors with a range of emotions from excitement to fear. Instructors frequently transition their traditional classes to the online environment without understanding the uniqueness of online learning. This can result in a passive learning experience for students, and feelings of failure for the instructor.

In this 3-week course, you will examine how to design and teach an effective online course that is anchored in student-centered learning and organized around clearly articulated policies, procedures, expectations, and learning objectives. The effective practices that have been integrated into the design of this course are offered to put you on track to success with your online teaching. This course will help you develop your own style and approach to teaching online, much like teaching in the classroom.

Read Testimonials from past course participants about their experience.


The online pedagogy training course is FREE to Delta College faculty. Space is limited. Please register ASAP.
