Program Overview

Summer@Brown Online courses are offered in a wide range of disciplines – from biology and engineering to Writing and History.  All are designed to be rigorous, active, student-centered learning experiences that reflect the teaching and learning goals of Summer@Brown. Instructors interested in teaching online first meet with an instructional designer to talk about how to create an experience online that reaches all students and engages them fully in the coursework, and that guides them through to the achievement of your learning objectives and the course’s goals.  The development of a solid online course takes time, and instructors should anticipate beginning to work on their course as early as January and continuing to work through early May. For further information and details on course development, contact the people listed below. Program Director: James D. Chansky Academic Program Support: Claudeline Cherry
