Online Only

The Teaching in a Digital World Certificate program is designed to meet the needs of a diverse group of learners with varying degrees of teaching experience in the online and/or hybrid environment. While teaching in an online environment shares many characteristics with face-to-face teaching, it is a fundamentally different educational experience for instructors and students.

The certificate is comprised of three sequential individual courses that are designed to develop essential online teaching competencies. Participants engage as a learner, facilitator, and beginner developer over the three (3) courses.

Courses are only available online. Upon successful completion of all the courses, participants receive a Certificate of Completion.

Courses must be taken in the following order: DEV. 014, DEV. 117, DEV. 118.

Clinic for Learning Management Systems

DEV. 014 

This clinic is designed for the beginner, intermediate, and experienced Learning Management System users. Participants will focus on developing the skills required to use a Learning Management System (LMS) to effectively deliver face-toface, hybrid and online courses. The clinic provides faculty members with the opportunity to become familiar with the student experience from pre-to post registration. In doing so, participants are introduced to effective communication techniques and strategies for using the tools of the learning management system to create a supportive and engaging learning environment. Participants are expected to apply the material in this clinic to their own face-to-face and online/hybrid course sites.
