TAMPA, Fla., March 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Bisk Education, Inc. (Bisk), a global leader in digital learning, announced it will be extending its Best Practices for Effective Online Instruction training program for free to faculty and institutions worldwide in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
With the continued spread of coronavirus, universities across the country are cancelling classes and shifting courses online. While many institutions are well-prepared for the transition to online learning, teaching in an online classroom can be daunting for faculty.
"Bisk's mission is to amplify potential through transformational learning experiences," said Bisk CEO, Mike Bisk. "Faculty are at the heart of these learning experiences, and we are pleased to offer this resource to fellow educators who want to excel at teaching in an online environment."
The self-paced training program covers essential instructional design principles for online course development, effective ways to engage learners online, and strategies for bringing a course online rapidly.
"Teaching online presents different challenges than teaching in a traditional classroom," said Dr. Richard Sites, VP Marketing & Learning Design for Bisk. "Over the last two decades, Bisk has helped empower thousands of faculty to provide engaging and impactful online learning experiences while maintaining academic quality and rigor. Our goal is to ensure that faculty feel confident and well-prepared to teach in a virtual classroom."
University faculty can sign up online and will have free access to the course through June 30, 2020.
