Preparing for Online Teaching & Learning

The Preparing for Online Teaching & Learning (POTL) workshop series offers a ground-floor introduction to teaching in the virtual environment. Within this series, faculty and members of leadership are introduced to key concepts and best practices needed to plan and develop online and hybrid courses and programs. This series was developed and originally offered in collaboration with the Hudson College of Public Health.


The sessions help manage expectations, build an understanding of differences in student needs when teaching in the virtual environment, and provide a framework for planning courses, programs, and scholarship. Learn what you need to know in order to establish a successful foundation on which to build lessons and curriculum.
