Faculty Resources

The CDL's faculty support team assists faculty in developing distance learning courses and using instructional technology. The support team's goal is to assist faculty in enhancing course quality, facilitating student collaboration, and increasing student engagement and success. Faculty can develop their skills, knowledge and abilities through individualized coaching sessions, group coaching sessions, face-to-face workshops or online workshops.

The CDL provides a wealth of resources to help support instruction, whether in the face-to-face or distance learning classroom. The team offers training and assistance in the design and implementation of web-based, web-assisted and hybrid courses. In addition, the team provides training on instructional software, assistance with multimedia development, access to Blackboard tutorials, and more. The CDL team is faculty's one-stop shop for all distance learning and instructional technology needs.

Creating Accessible Online Courses
