Aggies Teach: Recommended Workshops for Online and Hybrid Teaching 

Instructional Technology Training and Development (ITTD) and the Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) are combining our expertise and efforts to offer a series of sessions focusing on 7 essential topics to help make your online or hybrid (flipped or blended) teaching experience successful. The workshops will provide valuable information and best practices for preparing courses and instructing students remotely.  

We recommend completing sessions in each topic, leading to at least 19 hours of training. Each workshop is about 1.5 - 2 hours in length and offers opportunities for engaged and active learning among faculty. The sessions will also offer opportunities for practical applications of the concepts to help with course development in Blackboard. Visit http://learn.ncat.edu to register.
