The Promoting Instructional Excellence (PIE) Program develops faculty expertise in online instruction.
Promoting Instructional Excellence consists of two main parts: self-paced independent work completing modules and designing activities/assessments and synchronous sessions with your colleagues. Throughout the program, CELTT staff are available to provide one-on-one consultations to assist with course design.
POE participants will complete six modules and their accompanying deliverables. Five modules are required of all participants. For the final module, participants have a choice of three modules. Participating in weekly virtual cohort meetings is required. Additionally, all participants must have at least one individual consultation during the program.
