Virtual camp set to help faculty train for online teaching

Virtual Learning

Members of Sacramento State’s faculty are packing their virtual suitcases for a summer camp experience meant to further prepare them for fall classes that are scheduled to be taught online because of COVID-19 considerations.

The University has committed $1 million in federal funding to Teach ON!-line Summer Camp, a new program led by the Center for Teaching & Learning (CTL) and created in partnership with Information Resources & Technology (IRT) and the College for Continuing Education (CCE).

The funding comes from Sac State’s Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Security (CARES) Act allotment and will allow for as many as 800 faculty to attend a three-week-long session. Nearly 500 tenured and probationary faculty and lecturers have signed up so far.

Each faculty participant who completes Teach ON!-line will receive $1,000. The first session starts June 22, with the second beginning July 6.
