Teaching Online Courses

OCUFA’s Online Education Ad Hoc Committee has developed a new resource document for faculty associations on considerations for teaching online courses. CLICK HERE to access the document.

The document is designed to help faculty associations think through key issues for university professors and academic librarians regarding online learning. It aims to inform your association about the kinds of challenges that could arise and help you advise and support members who are creating and/or teaching online courses.

The document covers nine issues: course structure, course oversight, academic freedom, remuneration, intellectual property, updating courses, student resources, integrity of examinations and evaluations, and workload and enrolment. A brief description of each issue is provided, followed by a series of questions about that issue.

If you have any questions about the resource document, please contact Brynne Sinclair-Waters at bsinclair-waters@ocufa.on.ca.
