Abstract

Everything you ever wanted to know about the OLC Online Teaching Certificate.

Extended Abstract

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. A unique feature of the certificate program is that expert mentors work individually with each certificate candidate to accomplish specific goals.

The certificate consists of a 9-week foundation course and three electives or learning specializations that focus on improving overall competency within a specific area of academic focus. The workshops in each specialization are structured to encourage skill development and practical application within the participants' specific job function.

Upon completing the 9-week foundation course, individuals can select 3 individual electives, one specialization, or multiple specializations that best suit professional development objectives. Workshop electives are designed to be practical and address important technological advances and evolving best practices.

During their certificate work, participants also have the opportunity to develop a new online course or revise an online course that they’ve already developed and present their work in a capstone final presentation.
