When we use the word ‘teaching’ in this application, we mean any task or duty that involves grading, virtual office hours, web-based synchronous lecture/lab/recitation instruction, responding to students on a discussion board, or generally any other work in which you interact with a student in an academic manner. Your duties performed as a teaching assistant are considered teaching. Many of these questions ask you to describe your teaching experiences. Some of you may have teaching experiences at other places or with on-campus courses that have an online component; however, when you answer the questions in this application, please only describe your teaching experiences in courses at Georgia Tech where instruction takes place fully online.*

*Courses are considered fully online when all or nearly all of the class sessions are delivered via web-based technologies. Generally, if at least 95% of class time is spent online, a course is considered fully online. These courses do not require students to travel to a classroom for regular instruction; however, the course might require students to travel to a site to attend an orientation, to take exams, or similar activities. This award does exclude hybrid or flipped-classroom courses where students are required to meet with instructors or TAs at a physical location on a regular basis.

Downloadable Documents
