Teaching Online

Good teaching is good teaching, whether it happens in courses that are face-to-face, web-facilitated, hybrid or fully online. The difference in teaching online is that digital components require careful planning, and fully-online courses take a considerable amount of time to produce the kind of high-touch student learning experience we expect at Seattle University. Below are some ways you can explore teaching online through CDLI.

Course Design Program

If you plan to design a fully online or hybrid course, consider joining this community of practice that meets once a week for one quarter.

Course Design II

For alumni of Course Design, this CDII allows you to dig deeper into content creation. This course is generally offered in the Spring term.

Course Review Process

Note: Course reviews are not required during COVID. If you plan to develop a fully online course, please note that all fully online courses need to be reviewed 30 days before the start date.

Program Design & Portfolios

If your program is considering using ePortfolios for program assessment we would love to collaborate with you.

Gallery of Courses

Seattle University faculty have created some amazing courses, assessments, and digital materials. Check out this page to see some of the beautiful work.

Faculty Presentations

Several times each quarter, CDLI hosts a brown bag lunch session where an instructor highlights a digital intervention they have used in their classroom.

Creating Community in Your Canvas Course

If you are an instructor who will be teaching an online class that has already been developed and reviewed, we recommend that you enroll in our Online Course Facilitation course. You will need to request to be enrolled using the link on the Creating Community in Your Canvas Course page.
