Online Teaching Training

Session 3 Begins June 29

CELT and ILC are joining to help you transition your face-to-face class into a remote/online version. While it is true, we are all more experienced with this mode of teaching than we were mere weeks ago, creating a successful online class requires more than just Zoom and/or recording of lectures. We need to rethink the design of the curriculum to ensure faculty-to-student and student-to-student engagement, adequate and informative feedback, accessible content, and appropriate assessments.

This training will provide faculty with the fundamentals of course design as they apply to online pedagogy. Online Teaching Training details, here

Application Due: Friday, June 19 at 11:59 p.m. CDT 

CELT and ILC have developed the “Teach Anywhere” toolkit dedicated to providing guidance on moving your course online.  


CELT is committed to fulfill its mission:

Through collaboration with other university entities and serving as a nexus of information, CELT provides services and programs for faculty to encourage engagement in the Tulane community through exploration of pedagogy, participation in interdisciplinary dialogues, and formation of support networks. In addition, CELT assists faculty in providing students with opportunities to participate in engaged learning experiences that complement their career and academic goals.

What is CELT?  What is CELT's impact on Tulane's campuses? 


Learn More

"Since  CELT came into existence, there has been a much stronger sense among students and faculty that teaching matters at Tulane."

"CELT Provided confidence to try new techniques from information provided and having better expectations from hearing  'war stories' from other faculty.  Books, both via book club and lending library, were also very helpful in gaining ideas to be a stronger teacher and stepping back to take in a wider prospective from a  pool of experts."

"CELT is one of many factors that has helped me adjust my teaching toward a more active, participatory format. This includes think-pair-share and other activities to get students more involved."

"CELT provided more ideas for hands-on activities for students, which keeps them more engaged in classroom learning."

"I rely less on lectures and have made my classes much more 'student-centered' (a term I learned from CELT).  This has made it more fun to teach and I also feel that it has helped me at least partially address the problem of teaching students with different backgrounds and different levels of interest in the subject."

"Receiving funding enabled me to have guest speakers and other activities that I could incorporate into my syllabus  and thereby expand the students' experiences as well as elaborate further on certain subjects."
