Teaching Online and Blended Courses at Rush

At Rush University, the quality of the learning experience matters for all of our students, including the students who learn from a distance. In 2018, Rush University approved the use of Rush Standards for Online Course Design and Rush Standards for Online Teaching. 

Training for online teaching

All faculty members who teach at Rush should be trained in online teaching. We offer a free, completely online, 5-week training class for faculty. It is a highly rated course that faculty enjoy! You learn about teaching as well as how to design and teach a high quality online class. The upcoming course or courses are listed on the main CTEI landing page (the front page of this website). The dates are linked to a form to sign up.

The Center for Teaching Excellence and Innovation supports all faculty at Rush University. If you would like to inquire about ways to improve your online or blended course, or just wish to get another perspective, reach out to our instructional design staff through
