They are co-presented by the Center for Distributed Learning and members of the UCF teaching faculty. While this series is designed with online faculty in mind as an on-going follow-up to IDL6543, all members of the UCF community with an interest in online teaching are invited to participate. To more flexibly meet the needs of our diverse community, seminars are highly focused (i.e., 30 minutes for presentation and discussion), include numerous “take-away” resources, and are recorded for later review. Customized versions of each seminar are available. These are suitable for presentation at departmental/college faculty meetings or other faculty gatherings.
