Vancouver Island University Graduate Diploma in Online Learning and Teaching (OLTD)

VIU (Vancouver Island University) Introduces Graduate Diploma in Online Learning and Teaching (OLTD)

Distance learning is one of BC’s educational growth areas and teachers with expertise in this rewarding field are in popular demand. The OLTD program was designed in cooperation with professionals and school district distance learning principals to meet the needs of today’s 21st Century online learners.

This innovative, two-year part-time, fully-online, 30 credit program, develops confident educators competent in the use of existing and emergent technologies to optimize online learning and teaching opportunities for diverse learners in equally diverse environments. Through digital immersion in a variety of environments, students will explore theory and its practical applications based on research, as well as current and emergent practices.

The program engages a cohort model of 25 seats and meets industry and school district needs for knowledgeable and skilled distance educators focused on engagement, achievement and student success. Teachers and instructors with a BEd or an undergraduate degree in any discipline with current teaching experience are encouraged to apply.

Teachers currently practicing in BC’s public system will be eligible for increased TQS salary increments (depending on one’s current level.) The diploma program also qualifies graduates to ladder into VIU Masters of Education (Leadership) program with an additional 10 credits of Major Project/Thesis work.

Applications for September 2013 are now being accepted and the selection process begins March 31st annually.

I Have A Question That I Think Is Best Put…

Late last week I had the following query posted in one of my Google+ circles.

I have a question that I think is best put to this group (pardon – I know this deviates us from the very important focus on vision and mission) … but this is the right knowledge base to tap.  Are any of you aware of / involved in university courses that teach teachers (K-12, not faculty) how to teach online?  In my digging, I am not kicking up much of anything.  I find a lot of corporate efforts but no university courses.

In my response I mentioned the Certificate Series I published on this blog a few years back (see http://virtualschooling.wordpress.com/?s=%22Certificate+Series%3A%22).  I also references a series of my own book chapters that provided numerous examples:

Finally, I referenced the University of Central Florida student teaching example, and also mentioned the up-coming iNACOL book on pre-service and in-service teacher preparation (for which I am also a contributor).

Others mentioned the Online Teaching Endorsement for K12 at Georgia Southern University, the endorsement and Graduate Certificate program at Boise State University, the Graduate Certificate in Online Teaching at the University of Wyoming, the up-coming Kennesaw State MOOC (and I responded with a reminder about the MOOC my colleague and I managed last year), and the fact that Midwest REL and AACTE will be presenting a webinar on carrying out field experiences in online settings.

But in an effort to further broaden the responses, I figured that I would post it to this space and see if others wanted to add more…
