Start your semester off on the right foot with programs designed to build and enhance your skills. Are more of your students enrolling in Online or Blended classes? Do you have the skills needed to develop and facilitate interactive online courses based on strong pedagogical principles? Consider the OLC Online Teaching Certificate and Advanced Teaching Certificate program options that can meet these online teaching needs.
OLC Online Teaching Certificate
“Last semester my Learning Outcomes were fair to poor so I knew I had to make some changes. One course of action I chose was to explore this online and hybrid system of learning. I was concerned that I could not keep up or do the work but I was helped along the way, encouraged by the other participants and my mentor. I really feel confident that I can make some changes that will make a difference in my classes that will improve learning outcomes and student engagement.” – Stephanie Guillory, CPA, CFP, MBA, Lousiana State University
The OLC Online Teaching Certificate prepares educators to teach and improve online courses using the OLC pillars of quality in online education-learning effectiveness, scale, faculty and student satisfaction, and access. As part of this unique program, expert mentors work individually with each certificate candidate to accomplish specific goals.
Next Certificate Cohort Dates: September 9, October 7, November 4
OLC Advanced Online Teaching Certificate
“The advanced certificate program expanded my knowledge and skills sets in adding multimedia elements to my courses and meet like-minded colleagues. The best learning experience I’ve had in a long time. What a fun way to learn to add multi-layers to my classes, adding engaging activities, improving my syllabus and receiving feedback from the facilitator and participants. Loved every minute of the course and have a great list of resources to add to my repertoire.” – Dr. Arifa Garman, Ed. D, Gulf Coast State College
Do you have 3+ years of online teaching experience? The OLC Advanced Online Teaching Certificate Program is designed to help educators fine-tune existing distance learning courses and degree programs using the OLC Pillars of Quality in Online Education: learning effectiveness, scale, faculty and student satisfaction, and access.
