Innovative Online Teaching at UNH

In honor of National Distance Learning Week 2023 (Nov. 6-10), UNH faculty members share their philosophy, techniques, and advice for best practices in online teaching. Exploring new methods to engage online students, they leverage technology to drive subject mastery, enhance problem-solving and improve leadership skills while fostering high touchpoint communication. The common thread among them is a strong desire to offer the best possible education using creativity and innovation as their guideposts. 


Our graduates tell us that education with UNH Online fuels their passion and provides a strong impetus to their career growth.  At the University of New Hampshire, you don’t just get a degree, you get an education for a lifetime.
