This panel discussion reflects on the decisions made, challenges faced, and lessons learned from SDSU's Flexible Course Design Summer Institute (FCDSI). In Summer 2020, SDSU's FCDSI trained nearly 1000 faculty members in online instruction. Our program, designed and facilitated in virtual space, featured faculty-helping-faculty. Nearly 30 module designers and peer mentors created content and mentored faculty through three 3-week sessions. Flexibility, empathy, and teamwork were key: participants completed four required modules and four elective modules catered to their instructional needs. Each co-presenter offers a unique perspective on the training from faculty needs, to administrative logistics, to Canvas architecture to facilitate flexibility, to assessment, and faculty tech support.Professor of History and Co-Facilitator of SDSU Flexible Course Design Summer Institute
