Each online teaching certification is comprised of three elements, where faculty will learn, apply, and reflect on effective online teaching best practices and strategies.
- Personalized Professional Development Plan
- Best Practices: Required and Elective Activities
- Peer Review/Observation
In consultation with the Quality & Training Manager, faculty will develop a personalized certification plan, based upon their individual needs and goals.
Faculty will participate in selected workshops, courses, and other activities, where they will learn, apply and reflect on how to best implement best practices in their online teaching. Assigned Learning Designers will be available to provide support. Digital badges will be awarded for each successfully completed certification activity.
The faculty’s direct supervisor and other peers will review and provide feedback on the applied practices.
Upon successful completion of each certification, faculty will receive a certificate of completion to include in their teaching portfolio in support of rank, tenure, and promotion activities.
