OBTI aligns quality Canvas course design with best practices for teaching in a variety of modalities. Upon completion of OBTI, faculty and instructors will be well-prepared to design and develop their own courses and leave with tips to continue the iterative process for future terms. This course is most useful for people teaching online in the Winterim or Spring.

The Summer 2023 OBTI will be conducted as a hybrid experience with full LTC support and contact. This allows for two sessions of in-person instruction followed by optional Canvas labs. The remaining three sessions will be online (via Webex) workshops.

This session is designed as a cohort model, allowing participants to learn the best practices and view Canvas courses from other Whitewater faculty and instructors. Participants will complete a series of short online assignments, be provided a sandbox to design content, and develop objectives and activities to serve as an exemplar module that can be taken with them for their actual courses!

For more information or to enroll in this exciting training, contact Ted Witt.
