The Bay Path College Excellence in Online Education Initiative: a Three-Tiered Approach to Online Faculty Development

Wednesday, March 30 | 2:15PM–3:15PM
Session Type: Professional Development
Professional development in best practices for online teaching is essential to ensure that new online instructors are prepared to successfully teach their first course. At Bay Path College, we have established a faculty development initiative that incorporates a comprehensive orientation with mentoring and ongoing support. This three-tiered approach to faculty development has been successful in preparing our online instructors to work with students in the virtual classroom by giving them the training, resources, and support necessary to ensure a positive online learning experience for instructors and students.
