The Certificate in Online Teaching will be offered as four (8 week) online series beginning Summer 2013. These curriculum levels can be best described as weekly interactive modules designed to foster student interaction, rich media content, active instructors, with direct assessment tasks that foster research and online teaching development (according to our long-standing experience in best practices for teaching online). The certificate coursework will break down into the following:
- Series 1: Organization, Course Documents, Campus Policies – begins May 6, 2013
- Series 2: Course Communication, Campus Services, Compliance and Copyright
- Series 3: Student Interaction, Collaboration, and Assessment
- Series 4: Multimedia, Visual, and Instructor Presence
Registration / Enrollment
Participants in the certificate program will be asked to take each series in sequential order. It is not recommended to enroll in any two certificate series simultaneously. Taken without break, a participant in the program will be able to complete the certificate in 2 semesters. Enrollment will be limited to 30 participants, and depending on credentials (faculty, graduate student, etc.), will be registered on a first come, first serve basis.
To enroll in the program, please contact the Center for Teaching & Learning / IU East Online for a registration form. Indiana University East faculty may enroll in the Certificate in Online Teaching Program at no cost (other IU faculty $250/series; outside IU $500/series).
