The Office of Online Education is a resource for Wake Forest faculty and administrators interested in designing and delivering online learning experiences in the courses they teach and the programs they direct.

Our goal is to optimize the experience of online stakeholders – faculty, students, and staff – through the delivery of effective instructional design, excellent online program support, and meaningful faculty development services.

We believe in centering our people, rather than our technologies, in digitally-mediated learning environments, and we work with instructors and decision-makers at Wake to ensure that programs and courses are developed with this in mind. Our office supports a variety of online program types in implementing best practices and effective pedagogies that work for their respective curricula across the university.

We recognize that online courses and programs at Wake Forest University need to be, through and through, thoroughly Wake Forest experiences. For programs, this means working to keep the values of the department’s teaching and learning expressions while assisting them in operating within guidelines that keep online programs accessible and available to learners.

For instructors, this means helping them to create online courses that are exciting and excellent, leading to more and stronger connections with learners in guiding them to be future leaders in the field. For programs and people, our work is the same: to help you build your vision for a deeply enriching, and deeply Wake Forest, online learning experience for everyone involved.
