Additional Online Teaching Orientation and Refresher Sessions Added for Summer

Due to popular demand, Kent State Online has added two additional sessions of the Online Teaching Orientation and Refresher (OTOR) to the summer calendar from July 13 through August 14. Both sessions are 100 percent online, self-paced and asynchronous, and are FREE for current Kent State faculty and staff.

The OTOR is perfect for both beginning and experienced online faculty, Graduate Teaching Assistants, and staff members who want to learn more about online teaching and learning. Participant feedback suggests each module takes approximately 2-5 hours to complete and, because the course is self-paced, participants have freedom and flexibility in choosing how and when to complete the activities by the end date of the session. 

Module Topics include:

  • The Student Experience
  • The Instructor Experience
  • Getting Set-Up for Successful Instruction
  • Preparing for Challenges
  • Building the Peer Learning Community
  • Mastering Teaching Presence
  • Providing Feedback and Grades

Enroll at any time for either session, up to one week before the session closes. Begin instruction at your convenience and complete the coursework at your own pace!

Enrollment is limited. Register today!
