Meet the Instructors

Our online classes are taught by a dynamic and experienced group of instructors. Most are faculty members who are heavily involved in teaching, and typically they teach in traditional classroom settings as well as online. Our instructors also research online teaching methods and create digital learning materials for use in their classes.
