Elon Summer Call for Classes

Faculty who wish to teach during an Elon Summer must submit the Summer Course proposal form.

ALL Departments must submit all summer class offerings (on-campus and online) by May 1st. We encourage all summer courses be finalized by November 4th so students can begin planning and registering for your courses. Current students are eligible to register for summer at the same time they register for Winter and Spring courses.

Getting an early start on online course development is critical. Teaching and Learning Technologies (TLT) will provide technology training and support for faculty teaching summer online courses throughout the Spring semester. Online faculty will be supported by TLT’s Learning Design and Support Team for creating syllabi for online courses, accessible course modules in Moodle, lecture videos, engaging online activities, and relevant assessments.  An Instructional Technologist from the Learning Design and Support Team will contact all Summer faculty around mid-February.  If you would like to start developing your course sooner, you can request a consultation or call 336-278-5200.

Instructors must be logged into Elon’s VPN to securely submit the new online form. Please read the VPN Frequently Asked Questions for information about connecting to VPN on your mobile device. Requests will be automatically routed to the appropriate department chair and dean.

Summer Course Prep Professional Development Opportunities-2024

Join CATL and TLT for a series of professional development sessions created to help you enhance your summer term courses! These sessions will focus on applying an integrated course design model to your asynchronous summer term courses, from crafting learning goals to aligning activities with technology. While this series is tailored towards summer faculty, all faculty can benefit from attending one or all these sessions!

This professional development series includes four separate but scaffolded sessions, allowing participants time to work on different aspects of their summer courses in between sessions. Learn about this powerful pedagogical model, and get a jump start on designing your course and building your Moodle page! Lunch will be served at each session.

Secure your spot now and take the first step towards enhancing your summer courses! Register for these summer course professional development opportunities here.

Session 1: Transitioning your teaching to an asynchronous learning environment

  • March 20, 2024
  • 12:30 to 1:30 (lunch will be served at 12:15)
  • Belk Library 205

We often hear that asynchronous teaching is not as impactful (or fun) as in-person – but we’re here to challenge that! In this session, we will explore what makes teaching meaningful in your in-person classes, and ways to translate that into the asynchronous environment. By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify ways to transition their in-person approaches to teaching to an asynchronous environment.
  • Incorporate active learning strategies to engage students in a condensed, asynchronous format.
  • Consider key situational factors when designing and delivering your course

Session 2: Integrated course design for your asynchronous course

  • April 3, 2024
  • 12:30 to 1:30 (lunch will be served at 12:15)
  • Location TBD

  • 12:30 to 1:30 (lunch will be served at 12:15)
  • Location TBD

In this session, we will discuss how to integrate course learning goals, activities, and assessment opportunities, and how to align them with technology tools. By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify technology tools that align with course activities and assessments.
  • Integrate technology tools to support their course learning goals.

Session 4: Create your asynchronous course in Moodle

  • May 14, 2024
  • 12:30 to 1:30 (lunch will be served at 12:15)
  • Location TBD

For our final session, we will illustrate methods of organizing course content in Moodle to provide a smooth, consistent, and equitable student experience. By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify strategies for organizing course content in Moodle.
  • Implement course design best practices to create an equitable student-user experience in Moodle.
