Throughout this six-week summer edventure, you will challenge teaching and learning paradigms, reimagine the online learning experience, and ideate on integrating real-world, hands-on authentic activities and projects. As you design and build your online/hybrid course, you will

  • Dispel myths about online education

  • Develop a course plan that showcases alignment between learning outcomes, resources, and assessments
  • Design high impact learning activities that will challenge and inspire your students

  • Plan strategies for promoting meaningful online interactions
  • Create safe, supportive, and equitable learning experiences

Each week, you will explore these topics with peers from around the world, produce tangible teaching artifacts, and receive support from our facilitators. By the end of the six weeks, you will have transformed your course into a future-focused and empowering virtual experience for your students. Are you ready to take your online course in a BOLD new direction?
