When is the self-assessment due?
Self-assessments are due to Cougar Courses by Aug. 1
Where do I register for the pathway I've chosen?
There is no need to register for the pathway. If you would like to attend the FC Workshops, you can register for them here. Otherwise, the self-assessment is the only thing you need to submit, and that is due August 1.
What is required for the FC Workshop pathway?
Faculty must attend the following workshops. If you attended any workshop in May or June, it will be counted towards the requirement.
- Online 101
- Accessibility 101
- Equity Mindedness in Online Teaching
- Backwards Design
- Student Engagement
- Fostering Resilience
Where do I find the courses for the self-directed pathway?
This is a choose-your-own-adventure model where you can select from the workshops we're offering, the resources we've provided in the Cougar Course, or resources you find through professional organizations or elsewhere. The training you choose must fit within the topic areas we've listed including (but not limited to):
- Online Teaching Essentials
- Accessibility, Universal Design for Learning
- Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
- Instructional Design
- Student Engagement
Do Cougar Course, Ally, Zoom trainings count?
The workshops offered through IDS are useful and highly recommended but do not count towards the Faculty Center's training program. The training we are encouraging builds on pedagogical foundations that the IDS workshops support.
Can I do both trainings for $2000
No, you should select the pathway that best fits your needs, but you may only select one.
Do I submit one self-assessment per course?
No, it's one self-assessment per faculty member.
I completed the QLT program for one of my courses in the past; which is the best pathway for me to choose?
You can select the one that best fits your experience and confidence level about teaching online. The self-guided pathway may be best because it allows you to dig deeper into specific areas where you want to focus. Alternatively, you could complete the self-assessment without any training, and receive $500 in compensation.
Will the compensation be paid as a stipend or professional development funds?
Faculty Affairs is waiting to hear from the Chancellor’s Office about the details of the funds, and they will be disbursing them. Once we have additional information, we will update the website.
