Challenged by teaching remotely for the first time, faculty felt distanced and disconnected. Since social presence and relationship-building instructional practices promote student success (Glazier, 2016; Richardson, et al., 2017), our teaching center developed a course design institute in which faculty engaged with course climate-focused learning objects to lower the technology barrier, remove fear of new virtual tools, and turn "pandemic teaching" into a positive experience. This poster uses longitudinal data gathered from two years of the design institute to chronicle how faculty self-efficacy increased in implementing instructional practices to develop a course environment that energizes student learning.
