Columbia University Launches Free Online Course to Assist Veterans in Transitioning to Higher Education
Columbia University’s new Center for Veteran Transition and Integration has designed a unique MOOC (massive open online course) version of its University Studies course specifically to help veterans transition smoothly from military service to higher education, and bolster their success once they arrive.
The Provost’s Conversation on Online Learning (PCoOL) features public talks by leading experts and peers on the future of education, specifically around online education.
On January 30, 2019, Columbia University re-launched Women Have Always Worked with Alice Kessler-Harris. This online course series is now four separate courses, making it more convenient for learners to take the course, and it has been updated with new content covering the 2016 election and how women are contributing to the grassroots movements aimed at social and economic inequality
Columbia’s learning management system, CourseWorks, is at the center of many classroom activities including assessment and grading. If you are planning to deliver your final exams or parts of your final exams online, the CTL has a collection of resources and in-person services to assist you.
Want to rehearse your teaching practices? The CTL offers Microteaching Sessions to give you direct feedback and support. Also, check our upcoming workshop if you wish to prepare a syllabus from scratch.
The CTL partners with faculty, graduate students, and colleagues across the institution to support excellence and innovation in teaching and learning.
CTL staff support instructors at Columbia as they transform their classrooms and create engaging learning experiences. In these stories and conversations, instructors reflect back on their experiences.
Thank a professor or teaching assistant for their dedication in teaching and learning.
