Online Teaching and Learning Workshops

The Online Teaching and Learning (OTL) Workshop series is created with the intent to explore strategies, assessment, pedagogy, and tools and technology in online education. These workshops are mainly led by EKU faculty with moderate to extensive online teaching experience or by faculty/instructional designer tandems. OTL sessions are 40 minutes long with an additional 10 minutes for Q&A.
