Online Faculty Development Committee

The Online Faculty Development Committee (OFDC) was conceptualized by the Office of Online Learning as a mechanism to build capacity in online expertise across the University to support the UWI’s strategic goals.

The OFDC was established on June 30, 2020. Its main goal is to design and implement a sustainable framework for faculty training in online pedagogy across the UWI.  The OFDC comprises representatives from the Centres for Excellence in Teaching and Learning at Cave Hill, Mona and St Augustine; the Open Campus, the Five Islands Campus, the Mona Campus Office of Online Learning (Mona COOL), the eLearning Committee, the Committee of Deans, and the Office of Online Learning.  Currently, the OFDC is developing a number of faculty courses in online pedagogy, including facilitation, assessment and course design.
