As UTRGV progresses so does the demand of students wanting to enroll in online courses. This semester, the Teaching Large Online Courses (TLOC) pilot program successfully increased enrollment in participating online courses. The Center for Online Learning and Teaching Technology offered a workshop to assist faculty in the development of pedagogical methods to alleviate the challenge of teaching large online courses and the Provost Office provided Academic Coaches for eligible courses participating in the pilot.

This spring we will do it again! COLTT will be providing professional development as well as course development support to faculty wanting to participate by teaching large online courses with the assistance of an Academic Coach during the Summer/Fall 2017 semester.

The workshop will include Quality Matters Certification, best practices on activities and communication for large online courses as well as the best use of technology.

Qualifying Criteria

  • Online course section must be capped at no less than 75 seats
  • Minimum enrollment of 60 students per course section
  • Must teach a Large Online Course in the Summer 2017 semester
