What is Fall-On-Call?
COOL’s Fall-on-Call is an ongoing online teaching support community for faculty teaching in asynchronous-online, synchronous-remote, and blended/hybrid modalities during the fall semester. Fall-on-Call members receive access to live online teaching support from facilitators who are active online faculty, instructional designers, faculty developers, and experts in online learning.
Facilitators offer weekly coaching sessions and scheduled live workshops, and members receive access to unlimited support and a wealth of online teaching resources in a fun and supportive community of practice. Members join an active faculty community of higher education peers from across disciplines and around the world.
While Fall-on-Call does not serve as a replacement for your institution’s IT Help Desk or teaching and learning center, it does provide a lifeline for the teaching support services that are currently spread thin due to the impact of COVID-19 on our institutions.
This program is the perfect solution for faculty or institutions seeking extra and ongoing online teaching support to carry us through an uncertain fall semester.
This community supports faculty in all online teaching modalities.
