NEW! Flexible Course (Re)Design Modules
The CTL is here to support you in effectively designing or re-imagining your courses, regardless of whether you teach in a face-to-face, face-to-face/blended or fully online configuration, through our new Flexible Course (Re)Design modules. Our modules are structured so you can reflect on your prior instruction, reimagine your course outcomes and structure, develop appropriate assessments and engagement activities for any setting, and teach inclusively and equitably. To learn more about the modules please visit: https://www.umass.edu/ctl/flexible-course-re-design
Our Keep Teaching site provides practical concrete strategies and examples to answer common questions faculty have when transitioning a course (or components of a course) online. These strategies are grounded in educational research and the science of learning. These common faculty questions are grouped by categories that reflect the University Quality Standards for Fully Online Courses.
Course and Syllabus Consultations
CTL offers individual course and syllabus consultations throughout the summer. To schedule a consultation, please submit a Phone and Zoom Teaching Consultations Request Form.
