The Office of Online Learning & Academic Technology is committed to the continued excellence of our faculty by providing support for ongoing professional development for online instruction. OLAT’s ultimate goal is to improve the quality of the online educational experience across the college, with initial focus on ensuring excellence in course design and accessibility.
Our Approach Includes:
- Peer and CLE Reviews – Tri-C instructors have the opportunity to get valuable feedback from their faculty peers.
- The Center for Learning Excellence (CLE) will foster a culture of academic collaboration and inspire innovative teaching practices that facilitate student engagement and success.
- TEC Courses - All faculty have access to self-paced and facilitated workshops to learn more about applying effective online teaching practices, using the Blackboard course management system, designing accessible courses, and more.
