This resource site has been developed to help EPD staff and instructors in the development of courses and programs, particularly in the area of online synchronous course development and online teaching and learning strategies. Each participant comes to this site with different backgrounds, experiences, expertise, and perspectives, yet all will have a major goal in mind; the continuous improvement of our courses and programs.
The resources in this site have been selected in order to condense the massive amount of information available on teaching and learning into something a little more digestible. Participants are encouraged to engage in what is useful to them in the manner in which they deem fit, and to use this resource as a basis to improve EPD instructional products and services, to explore new information, new ideas, and best practices. The site should provide the foundation for seeking these out.
Please browse through the Instructor Resources pages. Please know that there are a number of tools and technologies available at UW-Madison and beyond, and remember that there is a "right" tool for every task, and some tools are better than other given the particular learning goals and context.
