Faculty Course Design and Development
The Molloy Blend: Developing Web-Enhanced, Hybrid or Online Courses
The Office of Blended/Online Learning and Student Success offers faculty support in designing web-enhanced, hybrid and online courses. The Molloy Blend acknowledges that quality web-enhanced, hybrid and online course design requires a flexible combination of workshops, resources, tools and instructional design consultations. In addition, our office will offer faculty events, an online learning community and online courses for all faculty.
Course design takes time, so faculty should plan to begin at least 12 to 18 weeks prior to the start of the course, depending on one's technical skills and previous experiences with online teaching.

Online Faculty Development Course for Molloy Faculty
"I found so much of this course useful, it did exceed expectations. I have made good progress on building the online class I am teaching...and now understand how important - and easy - it can be to personalize and participate in this online course you are teaching. I love the structure and organization of the course maps and plan to use them for other classes as well. I'm very glad I took this course - thank you!"
Meryl Rosenblatt, Assistant Professor - Division of Business
Teach, Learn, Course Design Online (TLC) is a fully online, two-week faculty development course focusing on best practices of hybrid and online teaching and learning. Faculty should expect to spend 10-12 hours per week doing online coursework. TLC is being held online so that faculty can experience learning online using Canvas before they teach in this format. It is highly recommended that faculty take Introduction to Canvas offered by Technology Learning Services prior to participating in this online course.
"The course was outstanding! I was able to create a very organized and
engaging course for the students as a result of the class!"
