Introduction to Online Teaching
The Introduction to Online Teaching is a fully-online asynchronous seminar that provides a pedagogical foundation for Saint Louis University faculty who are new to the online teaching environment. The seminar provides faculty an opportunity to gain the experience of an online “student” and to experience a fully-online course that has been designed to align with the University’s Online Course Design Rubric while developing a plan for an online course.

Introduction to Online Teaching for TAs
The Reinert Center is now accepting registrations for upcoming sessions of the online seminar, Introduction to Online Teaching for TAs. The seminar, which is offered completely online, provides a pedagogical foundation for Saint Louis University graduate student instructors who are new to the online teaching environment.
Instructors enrolled in the seminar will work asynchronously through Blackboard, with no face-to-face meetings. This seminar is only offered in the accelerated format, which requires an approximate commitment of six hours per week over a two-week period to complete. By the end of the seminar, participants will have a draft of a design plan for an online course designed to meet SLU’s Online Course Design Rubric. NB: Priority enrollment is reserved for graduate student instructors scheduled to teach a stand alone course during Fall 2020.
This course meets the teaching development requirement for teaching online courses at SLU.
Please see registration form for most current date offerings.
