OIT has developed a comprehensive Online Instructor Toolkit to assist prospective online instructors. Access the Online Instructor Toolkit and give us your feedback at email@example.com.
Our instructional designers will consult with you regarding online and
blended course design and evaluation. We also design and develop a wide
variety of media and multimedia materials including text, images, audio,
video, animation, and interactive elements for use in instruction. If
you need help with structuring your course Web site or Online@UT (Blackboard Learn) course
site, or with hosting media files, we can help with that too.
We offer a variety of professional development opportunities.
Face-to-face and online training is offered every semester on computer
programs and strategies for teaching with technology. Grants and
fellowships that provide opportunities for you to receive additional OIT
staff support, release time/stipends, hardware/software, and so forth
are also available. Calls for proposals for grants and fellowships are
typically released yearly.Explore Faculty Development Opportunities
Throughout the year, we will "put the

they bring to the teaching practice.

We provide many tools that support teaching and learning whether you
