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 https://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…
