  • Support for Distance Learning

  • To effectively deliver a distance course requires more than simply posting a syllabus, reading assignments, videos of lectures, and/or exams on a website. Careful attention to course design is required to improve student engagement, learning, and retention in online courses. Both University College and the Office of Teaching & Learning provide training and support to faculty and units who are currently involved in, or considering implementing distance education courses or programs at the University of Denver.  

    Individual courses need not be formally reviewed by the Distance Leaning Council, but should be approved by the appropriate person in the department, division, school, or college and include consultation with the online learning team in the Office of Teaching & Learning (OTL).  Online instructors for the University of Denver (other than University College) must complete the OTL’s “Teaching Online Short Course” before teaching online at DU.  

    Visit the Teaching Online portfolio for faculty, student, and technology resources available for teaching an online course.

    University of College instructors should contact Allison O'Grady, Senior Instructional Support Specialist, at or 303-871-3935 to schedule consultations. All other instructors should contact the Office of Teaching & Learning at 303-871-2084.
