The Following is an excerpt about TeachOnline@UW from the Professional & Organizational Development Network in Higher Education (POD).

UW-Madison has implemented several approaches to faculty learning communities that teach online and blended course design, effective teaching, and leadership. These programs seek to sustain the power of faculty sharing best practices for course redesign and building collaborations to continue to transform teaching and learning after the learning communities end. Join us as we discuss the challenges and best practices for developing and sustaining faculty learning communities in research universities, including creation of a Community of Practice to sustain and support the ongoing campus conversation. And share methods to engage and, encourage participation, especially with limited funding.
