Faculty & Professional Development

Departmental Trainings

Distance Education offers face-to-face faculty development sessions in many areas including course/instructional design, multimedia development, accessibility & ADA compliance, and D2L (basic and advanced). The intention is to not only support faculty in meeting online course development guidelines, but also to aid them in creating unique and engaging courses that are efficient and effective.

Below are faculty development sessions we have offered in the past. To schedule a faculty development session for you or your department, please contact us.

Online Training

In addition to the face-to-face development sessions offered by Distance Education, APSU faculty have access to select online trainings through Academic Impressions Pro, Quality Matters, Online Learning Consortium, and our Distance Education website. Please contact the Distance Education to see if training is available. Please note: all links open in a new window.
