Resources for Teaching Online

In the Sybil B. Harrington College of Fine Arts and Humanities, we are committed to continuous improvement of our online programs. Together with the WT instructional designers, we have faculty resources to help you design your courses to best meet student learning outcomes. Below are videos moderated by Dr. Kristina Drumheller serving as the faculty online course support liaison. Each video presents different tools and ideas for online courses specifically, but many of the ideas can be used in other teaching formats as well.

As you develop your online course(s), consider using or adapting the template developed by WT's instructional designers. Provide a written or video tour of your course to help students locate items in your course as its design might differ greatly from other online courses in which students are enrolled. Identify ways to regularly communication with students and help them engage with the material. Online courses take take, but a well designed course can be as rewarding as any other format.

Faculty in FAH provided input into the rubric currently used to review online courses in the college. Email Dr. Drumheller at for a copy of the rubric.
