Support for Teaching Online at Duquesne University

Educational Technology supports faculty who are looking for new ways to implement online technologies. This includes creating a new online course, moving a traditional face-to-face course to the online environment, updating an existing online course, or enhancing a face-to-face course with online components.

Professional Development

Educational Technology offers a variety of workshops and webinars. These professional development opportunities are designed to support instructors on a range of topics, including how to create and facilitate well-designed, engaging online courses. We also offer Foundations in Online Teaching & Learning (FOTL), an 8-week online asynchronous course where faculty learn how to design and begin to develop an effective online course.

Visit our professional development page to register for FOTL and to learn about other upcoming opportunities.


Visit our Online Teaching Resource Area as you begin to design or seek to improve your online course. You will learn about the Duquesne Quality Online Course Framework and associated resources as you identify strategic approaches to improve your online teaching effectiveness.


During consultations, an instructional designer will work with you to:

  • Design an online course based on a clear set of course learning objectives
  • Implement best practices in online course design and pedagogy
  • Select methods and tools for assessing and engaging students online
  • Use the Duquesne Quality Online Course Framework to review a previously taught online course
