The CEITL&DE offers the required Quality Online Teaching (QOT) program for faculty members who teach online, hybrid, or face to face along with a number of workshops and online tutorials. The Center for Excellence & Innovation in Teaching, Learning & Distance Education has the responsibility to provide distance learning faculty members with:
QOT 1: Canvas Fundamentals

Participants will explore the types of content that can be added to modules to enhance student learning.
QOT 2: Best Practices in Teaching Online
Best Practices in Teaching Online is an interactive training session that illustrates theoretical models, best practices, and practical strategies for online course design and instruction. After engaging in a discussion of instructional design principles, participants review the Citadel Online review standards. Interactions with the facilitators and participants provide opportunities for faculty to evaluate their courses, design activities for developing online communities for learners, and reflect on their goals for future online courses.
QOT 3: Best Practices in Curriculum Mapping
Best Practices in Curriculum Mapping is an interactive training session that focuses on aligning course objectives, activities, and assessments using the Citadel parity table. After reviewing the alignment principle and reflecting on their own course design, participants will practice using the Citadel parity table to map course curriculum.
