Essentials Workshop in Online/Hybrid Instruction for Faculty

This 6-week online intensive supports Nazareth College faculty who are developing an online or hybrid course for the first time.

The Essentials Workshop aims to guide faculty through pedagogical and technical considerations unique to online learning.

  • Facilitated by the instructional designer
  • Requires approximately 4-6 hours of work per week
  • Requires dean approval
  • Participants who successfully complete the Essentials Course--as well as teach their online or hybrid course--qualify for a one-time stipend award

Faculty must apply to indicate interest in the next Essentials Workshop. Priority is given to faculty developing online/hybrid courses for the upcoming academic year.

Completion Details

Part I Stipend: Will be awarded once a faculty member successfully completes the Essentials Workshop. Completion is defined as participation in all course activities, and the successful design of at least 50% of your original online or hybrid course.

Part II Stipend: Will be awarded once a faculty member successfully teaches the online or hybrid course that was developed during the Essentials Workshop. The course will undergo a review to qualify for stipend approval. Faculty must receive the Part I stipend to qualify for the Part II stipend award.
