The University of Denver is committed to developing quality online courses. The centerpiece of faculty development for DU’s online course design and instruction is the Office of Teaching & Learning's Teaching Online Workshop (TOW), which is an intensive online workshop that models how to teach online.
To ensure instructor success, a high-quality student learning experience, and compliance with accreditation requirements, completion of TOW is compulsory for all DU instructors before they are permitted to teach an online course. Because of your previous experience teaching online and based upon conversations with your college and department, we feel that you may be a potential candidate for exemption from the TOW requirement. Please complete the following form as thorough as you can. The more information you provide, the more accurate our evaluation will be. The less information you provide, the less likely that we will be able to determine if you should be exempted from TOW.
