Apply by May 10, 2021 at 11:59 PM EST

Emory Foundations for Online Teaching (EFOT) is a professional development opportunity for graduate students from any discipline offered through a partnership between the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship (ECDS) and the Laney Graduate School Office of Professional Development and Career Planning, with support from the Center for Faculty Development and Excellence (CFDE).

How it works

In a 6-week intensive course (May 24th- July 5th), EFOT introduces best practices for online teaching and is designed for graduate students who are preparing to TA or teach partially or wholly in an online environment.  All course sessions use Canvas, and the participant learns from the point of view of an online student. EFOT only requires that participants attend two synchronous Zoom sessions.

Upon completion

Upon successful completion of a module, graduate students will earn a digital badge from the ECDS and CFDE (awarded in Canvas). Those completing all five modules will receive a letter of accomplishment from ECDS and CFDE.


Apply for the program HERE by Monday, May 10th at 11:59 PM EST.
