BOTIP Spring Schedule 2022

The Center for Educational Innovation is proud to bring you the new Blended and Online Teaching Innovation Program (BOTIP). There's both Quality Matters Courses and Zayed University Applied Workshops outlined in this Spring 2022 schedule. BOTIP is future-focused, to build knowledge and skills to design and develop blended and online courses from beginning to end. For more general information, click here. This means you'll learn to purposefully and intentionally design blended and online courses from the outset. See the QM and ZUAWpages for more information.

All of the QM courses and ZUAW are predominantly asynchronous online cohort-based learning. This means that you can complete the work flexibly anytime, anywhere. There are firm due dates to guide you to complete your work on time. This will encourage you to keep pace with all your colleagues while learning together.
