Instructors Teaching in Spring 2021 must complete the following six modules before the spring semester begins: 

  • Student Success and Creating an Online Community
  • Making Your Course Accessible
  • Designing Your Course for Online Delivery
  • Getting the Most out of Canvas
  • Video Production for Teaching Online
  • Creating a Secure Learning Environment

To register for these training modules, visit the Instructor Training for Dual Delivery and Fully Online Courses.

If you taught during Fall Semester and have already completed these training modules, there are no new requirements for this semester.

You can find additional resources for teaching remotely from our campus colleagues in Learning Environments and The Center for Teaching Excellence. 

Learning Environments will be offering one-on-one training as well as short videos and documentation to faculty on the classroom setups for dual delivery. Learning Environments are also working with the Student Association to have Technology TAs that can assist faculty in classrooms. For more information on the technology and training, visit https://wiki.rice.edu/confluence/display/FALLPLAN/Fall+Technology+Planning+Home

The Center for Teaching Excellence is offering a variety of group and individual opportunities for instructors on dual delivery, including:

  • Adaptable Course (Re)design Institute:  A five-day course (re)design institute facilitated by the CTE staff and Faculty Fellows that will include synchronous and asynchronous components, as well as a self-paced fully asynchronous option. 
  • One-on-one Adaptive Pedagogy Consultations for instructors on course design, teaching strategies, exam and assignment design, and student mentoring in the dual-learning context. 
  • Adaptive Teaching Workshops: CTE staff and Faculty Fellows will host ½ day remote workshops on the unique pedagogical needs of schools and disciplines in the dual-learning context.
