Teaching Ideas

As part of UMW’s Online Learning Initiative, we are interested in collecting and sharing ideas that anyone can use to build a model online course that incorporate the values the project has identified.

To that end, we are gathering Teaching Ideas from the community and building this site out as a way to search and filter through submissions. If you would like to submit your own idea, please fill out this form. In the meantime, feel free to use the ideas listed below as you work on building your own online course in the liberal arts.
