We have been looking at ways to support you and hope that you found the online teaching article we shared on our global blog, inspirational.

Epigeum is a leading provider of online courses designed to assist universities and colleges in changing their basic activities in, among other things teaching development and research. We have identified two FREE online training programmes that you may find useful – Teaching Online and Blended Learning. The outlines of these programmes are as follows:

  • Teaching Online presents the fundamental principles of online pedagogy, guiding users through the “nuts and bolts” of designing, delivering, and evaluating online courses for the first time. It also includes a stand-alone course to support students in making the most of their online learning experience.
  • Blended Learning explores the strategic and practical implications of integrating face-to-face and online methods in teaching and learning, covering a range of models and approaches, and includes advice on fostering a blended learning culture.
