Courses and Workshops 

See the  CAE Summer Schedule for information and registration links to the following courses and workshops: 

  • Appalachian Agile Academy-- specifically designed to prepare for hybrid teaching 
    • The Appalachian Agile Teaching Academy is a two-week asynchronous course aimed at helping faculty design flexible courses for the Fall 2020 semester. Faculty will learn how to design a highly adaptable course utilizing online, blended, and f2f components. During this two-week AsULearn course, participants will work asynchronously with peers and facilitators to think through important course considerations as we approach Fall. We will explore questions such as:

      • How can I adapt meaningful components of my face to face courses for maximum flexibility, regardless of teaching format?
      • What is a good assignment and assessment structure for a flexible online course?
      • How can I align instructional activities and assessments to learning goals to ensure my students are mastering important objectives?
      • Am I making teaching choices that are inclusive of a wide range of student needs in a flexible online environment?
  • Quality Matters (QM) mini-courses

  • Learning to Teach Online Hybrid courses have a solid online core. This brief module from the UNC System Digital Learning Initiative (DLI) is a great way to get started
