Workshops & Institutes


In addition to workshops, the CAT offers more intensive training opportunities. CAT Institutes are small-group, multi-session opportunities to delve more deeply into aspects of your teaching practice

Online and Advanced Online Teaching Institutes

The Online Teaching Institute (OTI) and the Advanced Online Teaching Institute (AOTI), offered by the Center for the Advancement of Teaching, are designed to enhance the pedagogical skills of educators in online environments. The OTI helps both new and experienced instructors design effective online courses that promote student success. Participants will learn to establish an online presence, integrate essential course design elements, create effective assessments, and develop engaging learning activities. They will also focus on motivating learners and preparing courses with accessibility in mind using evidence-based practices. The AOTI is tailored for instructors looking to refine their existing online courses. It delves deeper into evaluating and improving course structures, creating inclusive environments, adding interactive multimedia elements, and implementing robust assessment strategies to uphold academic integrity. Both programs aim to equip educators with comprehensive strategies for enhancing online teaching and learning outcomes.

The Teaching for Equity Institute at the Center for the Advancement of Teaching provides a supportive space for our community of faculty to engage in deep conversation on what it means to create equitable, inclusive, and just learning opportunities for our diverse group of learners in every discipline offered at Temple University, and to develop strategies for accomplishing this goal.
