The Office of Multimodal Learning is pleased to announce our inaugural Faculty Institute for Online Teaching to be held over two Fridays this Summer, July 11 and July 18. The all-day sessions (9:00am-4:00pm with lunch included) will provide an introduction to online instructional technologies (Day 1) and instructional design theory and online pedagogy (Day 2). The institute is limited to 15 participants to allow for hands-on workshops and peer collaboration.
The institute will be the first step for faculty to earn a Master Online Teacher certification that may be used as evidence of professional development and teaching effectiveness for performance review (subject to Chair and Dean approval). Faculty who complete the faculty institute and the following requirements for certification will receive a $1,000 stipend:
• Complete the faculty institute
• Attend select training workshops
• Participate in faculty learning community meetings
• Develop (or revise) an online course with peer feedback in an online seminar
• Submit the online course for quality assurance review
Faculty interested in attending the Summer institute should reply as soon as possible to Justin Carroll in the Office of Multimodal Learning at 963-1258 or firstname.lastname@example.org. If you cannot attend in Summer, you should still reply with your interest and an additional faculty institute may be offered prior to Fall quarter.
Please also indicate if you are interested in the Master Online Teacher certification. Faculty who wish to pursue certification will be asked to submit a letter of application and a letter of support from their Chair. Please let us know if you have questions or would like more information.
