College of Education > Faculty & Staff > Online Teaching Resources
The university's decision to transition all Spring quarter classes online in response to the COVID-19 outbreak has created a unique set of challenges to our faculty. Changing to virtual teaching requires a different set of not only tech skills, but a different approach to teaching.
Many of the COE faculty have gone through the DePaul Online Teaching Series (DOTS) and can be a valuable reference. Please reach out to the head of your program if you would like to be put in contact with a DOTS-trained colleague.
Each department is staffed with a terrific team of department assistants and graduate assistants. They are currently working to make sure they are up-to-speed with all of the digital learning tools so that they can be available to assist faculty as well.
In addition, we've assembled this list of resources. Please bookmark this page and refer to it often. We will be adding to it as new resources become available.
Your first step should be DePaul's
Teaching Commons. This collaboration between various offices across the university is designed to support faculty and facilitate the exchange of teaching strategies and materials. They're offering webinars throughout the month of March geared towards faculty who have little to no experience teaching online. They have also listed a great deal of how-to guides for the various tools available to you for online teaching.
Within the College of Education, we have the
Center for Educational Technology.
John Gieger and his team will be offering support in a variety of ways throughout Spring quarter ranging from virtual office hours to online discussion groups and Zoom tutorials.
Melissa Bradford, a member of the College of Education's e-Learning committee, has created the following screencasts. The "Basics" are a great introduction to D2L for faculty members that rarely use it.
