Teaching Online Community

About

As a dynamic complement to the Teaching Online web site, UCF’s Center for Distributed Learning (CDL) seeks to foster dissemination of effective online and blended teaching practices through collegial dialogue between UCF’s teaching faculty and faculty/designers of other institutions. This facilitation occurs in face-to-face and online venues. For more information or to suggest ideas, please contact Dr. Kelvin Thompson at kelvin@ucf.edu or (407) 823-0462.

Teaching Online Roundtable Discussions

CDL hosts occasional on-campus round-table discussions for UCF’s teaching faculty and designers. These informal discussions are a great source of ideas for enriching one’s teaching practice. Some ideas shared in these discussions are codified in UCF’s Teaching Online Pedagogical Repository (TOPR) which is open for viewing/contribution by faculty/designers from all institutions. Some sessions may be live tweeted or otherwise distributed.

Upcoming Roundtable Discussions

No sessions are scheduled at this time.
