CITL's Master Course in Online Teaching (MCOT) is a deep dive into online teaching strategies that extend what was presented at the Online Teaching Academy (2020) and the Illinois Summer Teaching Institute (2021). Prior participation in either instructional development series is not required but professional experience with university level instruction is strong encouraged.


This synchronous version of MCOT will be limited to a small cohort to form our supportive learning community. The course contains 4 modules which have a modest weekly time committment of approximately 4 - 5 hours. We will explore the following topics:


Module 1 - Designing Your Online Course

Module 2 - Developing Your Learning Community

Module 3 - Adapting Best Teaching Practices to Your Online Course

Module 4 - Motivating Your Students to Excel


Certificates will be presented to those who complete all course requirements.

  • Complete each module deliverable
  • Complete each Tech Tools assignment
  • Attend 3 of 4 synchronous course meetings

Please join us as we learn together from online teaching experts from around the world and right here at Illinois. The course opens on Monday 10/4/21 and our synchronous meetings occur at 11:30am - 1:00pm on the following four Mondays - October 11, 18, & 25 and November 1.
