Innovative Teaching Strategies

4-week workshop for instructors

January 3rd to January 28th, 2022

Join us for “Innovative Teaching Strategies” where we explore current best practices for teaching – specifically, instructor presence, student engagement, assessments, and multimedia. These best practices can be applied in all courses, regardless of whether you’re teaching fully online, in person, or some combination of formats. During this 4-week course, you will have the opportunity to collaborate with ATS instructional designers, other instructors, and guest speakers to see these best practices modeled both asynchronously and synchronously.

Weekly course modules

Week 1: Instructor Presence & Communication

Week 2: Student Engagement

Week 3: Assessments

Week 4: Multimedia & Library Resources

Weekly Zoom sessions

Thursdays from 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. beginning Jan 6.

Course format

This course is a hybrid format with asynchronous content available in Canvas and a synchronous Zoom session each Thursday at 1:30 PM. During synchronous Zoom sessions ATS instructional designers, class participants, and guest speakers will delve deeper into best practices.

Tools we’ll be modeling

Poll Everywhere, Respondus, Perusall, UD Capture, advanced Canvas and Zoom features and more. Tools will be modeled and briefly introduced with individual consultations available by request.


Participants are expected to complete the asynchronous content, attend the weekly Zoom meetings, and be prepared to discuss their ideas for how they plan to incorporate the strategies into their classes.

Customized cohort sessions are available upon request
