As a part of the overall strategy to increase the number of online course sections, the Dornsife School of Public Health (DSPH) offered a professional development workshop program on online teaching, course design, and the learning management system (LMS). Low attendance in these workshops over the first two years led the school to pilot an incentive program for faculty development in online course design and teaching in Fall 2018. This paper will review the design of the incentive and training program and the measured outcomes.
