Led by James Lang, PhD, director of the Center for Teaching Excellence at Assumption College, the online course provides evidence-based pedagogical advice on how to effectively design a course, create exams, manage content, increase student engagement, deal with common classroom challenges, evaluate learning, and more.

Because it’s self-paced, you can complete the course on your own timeline, and assessments built into the course ensure that you’re staying on track and retaining valuable information. In addition to the video-based presentations, you’ll also get expertly developed supplemental materials, including resource lists, that you can reference right away or long after you’ve finished the course.
