Online Faculty Development Program
The Online Faculty Development Program is designed to provide faculty with the knowledge, tools, and resources to create and deliver high-quality online courses.
The LT&ITC, together with the Faculty Instructional Technology Center (FITC), and our campus’s manager of Distance Education Faculty Services, provides faculty with guidance about the online course proposal process, the training requirements, the creation and delivery of an online course, and opportunities to conduct Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) projects.
The LT&ITC offers individualized instructional design consultations to faculty members. Provided below are links to resources related to online course development at MTSU.
