Faculty Development Opportunities

We offer a variety of faculty development opportunities – hands-on workshops, teaching presentations, online webinars, and one-on-one consultations.  Please consult our workshop calendar or contact us to make an appointment. 

Additionally, we offer several online experiences.  Available to all IU faculty and staff, at no charge.   

Teaching Technology Badges

Our Teaching Technology Badges will help any faculty member “fill in the gaps” on what they know about campus technology, instructional software, and incorporating media.  Designed for those who are generally self-sufficient and independent learners, these badges are self-paced, each consisting of several modules that provide the participant with learning materials to achieve the desired tasks.  CTL staff are available for guidance (lifelines), but feedback will be based on a complete / incomplete scale.


Participants can enroll and complete at any time.  We recommend, however, that participants progress in the series order, beginning with the Campus and Services Badge, in order to build on concepts.  Open to all full and part-time IU faculty and staff, at no cost. To participate, visit our enrollment page.

Certificate in Online Teaching

The Certificate in Online Teaching will be offered as four (8 week) online series. These curriculum levels can be best described as weekly interactive modules designed to foster student interaction, rich media content, active instructors, with direct assessment tasks that foster research and online teaching development (according to our long-standing experience in best practices for teaching online). The certificate coursework will break down into the following:

  • Series 1: Organization, Course Documents, Campus Policies - New Cohort begins January 4, 2016.
  • Series 2: Course Communication, Campus Services, Compliance and Copyright
  • Series 3: Student Interaction, Collaboration, and Assessment
  • Series 4: Multimedia, Visual, and Instructor Presence

Each course can also be completed as a teaching badge.  Participants will still be required to participate, interact, and perform tasks, but can conclude their learning at the end of a particular series with the award of a teaching badge in that area.
