Hello Instructor Community,

 

We’re always looking for new ways to listen to and invest in our instructors; we want to provide you with the support you need to be successful. Today, we’re announcing the launch of our second cohort of the Udemy Instructor Partner Program for Udemy Business instructors.

 

What is the Instructor Partner Program?

The Instructor Partner Program is an official program for Udemy Business instructors to partner more closely with Udemy and other participating instructors. This is an opportunity for us to grow together, while we work together for a better Udemy. Participating instructors will gain access to expanded technical support, special networking events, potential new marketing opportunities, and more. 

 

The Instructor Partner Program is still new and will evolve with your feedback in our continued effort to meet your needs and those of our students. For more details on the Instructor Partner Program (benefits, eligibility, how to apply, etc.), please visit our Teaching Center FAQ.

 

If you are not currently a Udemy Business instructor and want to get more involved in the Udemy Community, check out our Community Champion program! Applications for this program open on June 13, 2022.

Hello Instructors! 

 

We are thrilled to announce that we are hosting our second Udemy Community virtual coffee chat of the year, on Friday, May 20th at 12:00 PM PST* and you are invited! 

 

What is a virtual coffee chat? 

 

The community virtual coffee chats are hour-long informal networking sessions held via Zoom. During these sessions, you’ll have the opportunity to network with and get to know other Udemy instructors from all across the world.

 

How does it work?

 

Because May is Audio Visual month in the community, we will spend the first 30 minutes discussing AV tips & tricks as a larger group. Then you’ll be broken up into smaller groups so that you may get to know your fellow instructors better.

 

How do I sign up?

 

Glad you asked! You can sign up right here.

 

We look forward to seeing you on Friday, May 20th at 12:00pm PST !

 

*We understand that this time may not be ideal for all time zones, however, we will change the times of the coffee chat each month to accommodate different locations.

Hello Hello! 

 

We have some exciting news to share! We’ll be launching a new Welcome forum. Whether you've been here for a while or you're a new member, this new forum will take you on a journey to our community. There are so many instructors in this community that we think it’s important to create a space for you to share a little more about who you are, get to know your fellow instructors, and learn about everything that our community has to offer.

 

We are also looking for volunteers to represent this official Welcome Committee! This is a great opportunity to take your instructor experience to another level and make an impact in the Udemy Community. To be part of it, you just need to:

 

  1.  Be a regular participant in the community. Regular does not necessarily mean daily, but that you participate multiple times a week/month on an ongoing basis.
  2.  Be interested in helping new instructors, making new connections, and sharing your knowledge.
  3.  Abide by the Community Guidelines and have a generally friendly approach with others.

 

As this is a voluntary position, you are not required to spend a set amount of time helping others; you can spend as much or as little time as you wish. Of course, we are offering perks for being part of our Welcome Committee group: 

  • Enhanced access to the Udemy Community team
  • Occasional SWAG 

 

If you're interested, please fill out this form and we will reach out to you with more information. Let's make this an even more vibrant and welcoming community together!

We value our instructors at Udemy. We created the Instructor Community to have a dedicated space for our instructors to connect with like-minded individuals to change lives through learning. We’d like to take this space to the next level.

We are considering creating a space for Instructor groups to provide our instructors the ability to team up with instructors near you and instructors like you. For example, there may be a team for Instructors in Turkey, Women Tech Instructors, Instructors with 500K Students. The possibilities are endless. Before we go any further, we wanted to get your input as this space will be for you! 

 

Click here to give us your feedback & let us know if you would be interested in these types of groups.
