Inclusive teaching supports equitable access to learning for all students. UNH Academic Technology Instructional Design and Development created a self-paced course on Inclusive Teaching focusing on course content, teaching practices, and interactions. The goals of the course are to increase awareness of inclusive and culturally responsive practices, and positively impact student retention. The open, online, self-paced course shares practical tips for inclusive teaching and offers faculty the opportunity to reflect on their practice. No registration is needed, participation is free and open.

Fundamentals of Online Instruction
A three-week (approximately 3 hours per week) is an online, asynchronous course for faculty who will be developing an online course and teaching online for the first time. FOI helps prepare you for teaching online, gives you a jumpstart in creating a course plan for a course you will be teaching, and gives you the experience of taking an asynchronous online course as a student.
Date: Monday February 7th, 2022
Facilitator: Xuan Cai, CEITL Learning Architect
Fundamental of Online Delivery
This asynchronous two-week online course is designed for instructors assigned to teach a course online for the first time. The course focuses on delivery and facilitation of online courses, rather than design. The content of this course is also a part of the longer Fundamentals of Online Instruction course, so you need not take both.
Date: Monday February 7th, 2022
Facilitator: Mike McIntire, CEITL Learning Architect
Fundamentals of Active Learning
This course comprises two weeks of asynchronous online modules and an optional synchronous, hands-on component for TEAL technology training (required to use the TEAL classrooms). Get simple and adaptable active learning strategies that you can immediately incorporate into your current syllabus, and prepare for teaching in a Technology-Enabled Active Learning Classroom.

Midcourse Assessment Program (MAP)
CEITL coordinates a service by which faculty can receive feedback about their students’ learning in their course. MAPs are available for your courses for any course modality. The primary benefit of a MAP is that it provides information about your students’ perceptions of the course in time for adjustments to be made if deemed necessary. An added benefit is that your students are given a strong message that you are interested in knowing how they are doing in the course. The online MAP form is a Qualtrics web-based form.
Teaching and Learning Resource Hub
A UNH website for a one-stop collection of resources for planning for teaching & learning. Here you can select resources to directly search for websites, articles, tutorials, videos, reports and other materials. Follow this link to arrive at the Resource Hub website.
CEITL Participation Certificate
CEITL welcomes enrollment in a CEITL Participation Certificate for UNH faculty, staff, and graduate students. The certificate recognizes participation in a variety of teaching- and learning-related activities.
