Faculty Institutes and Intensives

The CTL offers Institutes and Intensives both asynchronously (self-paced) and synchronously (live sessions) that address multiple teaching formats—face-to-face, online, and hybrid/blended. Topics range from broader teaching approaches to in-depth looks at specific teaching strategies and skills.

These synchronous and asynchronous opportunities provide a space for faculty to develop new teaching approaches, applications, and skills with guidance from CTL staff in an immersive, supportive environment.

Adapt Your Course to a Flexible Format


Hybrid & Online Teaching Institute

The CTL has developed the Hybrid & Online Teaching Institute: an online offering that guides faculty through adapting their courses from face-to-face to online or hybrid formats. This offering provides instructors a foundation that can serve across all formats of teaching with the capacity to adapt quickly to whatever mode of teaching makes the most sense at any given time. The institute provides faculty with a comprehensive toolkit they can apply to their own course context whether this may be a seminar, small lecture, or large lecture class. 

For: all Columbia faculty
Format: mix of self-paced and live sessions
Time Commitment: six hours


Design or Redesign Your Course from Scratch

Course Design Essentials

Are you looking to design a new course or change the design of an existing course (face-to-face, blended, or fully online)? Do you want to jump start your course planning for the fall semester? Enroll in our online, self-paced Course Design Essentials course. There you will be guided through the fundamentals of learner-centered course design and a series of activities and downloadable worksheets. Upon completing the asynchronous experience, you should have a plan and the resources needed to continue the design process.
