This interactive hands on course is designed for those who want to develop their skills as educators in online and hybrid environments.  The course will begin with some brief online preparatory activities, then participants will come to campus for a 5 day in person mentored experience. Over the course of the 5 days, participants will learn principles of online and hybrid course design and teaching as well as technology and resources for creating engaging learning activities. Participants will apply this knowledge daily in mentored lab experiences where they will design and create a learning module about a topic of their interest. At the end of the seminar, each participant will have a e-portfolio of their work to take. In addition, participants will have access to the course platform for one year so they can go back to it to review their work, show others, etc.  Participants who successfully complete the course will receive 3 AOTA approved Continuing education Units (30 contact hours).
