Online Teaching Academy

Online Now Resources for Teaching During an Emergency

The Center for Academic Innovation in collaboration with the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching have been developing a series of resources designed to help faculty get started teaching online. Full release of the site is slated for May, but we are releasing some of the materials to help faculty bridge the gap in case of an emergency disruption of classes.

The Center for Academic Innovation recognizes that to create excellent online and hybrid degree programs, there must be an institutional commitment to support U-M faculty in the new pedagogies of online teaching. The Online Teaching Academy (OTA) is a high-priority initiative within CAI to connect educators with research-supported information to support the development and facilitation of exceptional learning experiences for online and hybrid students at U-M. Working collaboratively with stakeholders across AI, the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching, and our partnering academic units, the Online Teaching Academy supports all faculty in their online and hybrid teaching endeavors.

The goals of the OTA include:

  • Create rich learning experiences and materials that support faculty needs in online pedagogy, media development, online education policy and more.
  • Engage faculty through customized resources to support the various needs of including just-in-time, collaborative, and peer-to-peer learning.
  • Build a community of educators committed to exemplary online and hybrid education opportunities.
