Online Teaching Community
Call for Mentors and Mentees

  • Do you want to learn how to create a successful online learning environment?
  • Do you need assistance in designing an online or hybrid course?
  • Do you want to know what new tools exist for online teaching?

The Faculty Development Committee is organizing an Online Teaching Community whereby experienced faculty (tenure track, non-tenure track, and adjuncts) can mentor others who wish to create online or hybrid courses for existing or new classes in the College of Education.

Mentors should have taught at least one online class and have proficiency in some online tools. Those who participate as mentors will receive an iPad mini (or other tablet valued around $300). Requirements of the mentors include:

  • Attend an introductory meeting on March 26 at 2-3 PM in room 211.
  • Work with 2-3 mentees.
  • Share syllabi from online or hybrid classes with mentees.
  • Serve as a “guest” on the mentee’s Blackboard site.
  • Be available for questions during the summer.
  • Take on a year commitment, beginning now and extend through Fall 2014.
  • Attend a final wrap-up meeting in late Fall 2014 (date to be announced).

Mentees should be planning to teach an online or hybrid course within the next academic year (2014-2015). Requirements of the mentors include:

  • Attend an introductory meeting on March 26 at 2-3 PM in room 211.
  • Work with a mentor on course syllabus or specific tool use.
  • Share syllabus from online or hybrid course with mentor.
  • Serve as a “guest” on the mentor’s Blackboard site (if appropriate).
  • Take on a year commitment, beginning now and extend through Fall 2014.
  • Attend a final wrap-up meeting in late Fall 2014 (date to be announced).

If interested, please complete the application form and submit it to Carol Brandt (carol.brandt@temple.edu) by March 10, 2014.

Adjuncts, non-tenure track, and tenure track faculty in the College of Education are welcome as mentors and mentees.
