Join the Online Instruction ForumHave you ever…

  • Had a question about online teaching and didn’t know who to ask?
  • Wanted to share an idea with other faculty members?
  • Wanted to have conversations with fellow Harper faculty about teaching online?
  • Been curious to learn more from each other?

We are excited to announce that the Academy for Teaching Excellence has launched an Online Instruction Forum for Harper faculty. The Online Instruction Forum is part of Harper’s Yammer communities. Yammer is a social platform within Office 365 that gives Harper staff and faculty a secure and convenient way to communicate and collaborate. The ability to communicate, collaborate, and share ideas is integral to the success of transitioning to online teaching. By building this community using Yammer, we can now work together, better than ever before.
