Certification Course for Teaching Online

Online Courses: Step-by-Step is a new program to help faculty members teach online comfortably and confidently. Have you wanted to incorporate online teaching into your course? Are you interested in bringing your passion for teaching into the virtual world, but uncertain how to get there? Are you concerned about a long and painful learning curve? Or are you teaching online now, but the experience is less than what you expected?

You don’t need to be a technology whiz … you don’t need to be a programmer … you don’t need a sophisticated understanding of the online world. You simply need to be a committed educator interested in reaching students in this exciting new way.

Online Courses: Step-by-Step is a three-module program developed in partnership with program designer John Orlando, Instructional Resource Manager of Norwich University’s School of Graduate Studies and a ten-year veteran of online faculty training. The focus is on the three areas critical to your success in moving online:
  • The pedagogy of online teaching.
  • The “tools of the online trade.”
  • How to get your course up and running.
You’ll complete one module per week for three weeks, developing a thorough understanding of virtually every aspect of the online teaching experience.

If you are interested in taking the course, please contact Dr. Rod Murray. Although this is not an instructor-led course, Rod will be available throughout the course to answer questions and participate in online discussions.

NOTE: Do not sign up on your own on the Magna Publications website -- the University gets a group discount.
