Online Teaching Certificate - Online
Online teaching – ranging from hybrid courses that offer a combination of in-person and online instruction to fully online experiences and distance learning – is growing and expanding in K-12 settings and is increasingly common at many types of higher education institutions. The Online Teaching certificate program is designed for K-12, college and university educators interested in creating and teaching online and blended courses, or using Web-based/Web 2.0 components to enhance face-to-face instruction. In accordance with professional standards for quality online courses (iNACOL and IBSTPI), participants will complete coursework that addresses the following areas related to online teaching and learning: roles of instructors and students, communication, facilitation strategies for online discussions (both asynchronous and synchronous), the collaborative nature of online courses, available technologies for delivering online courses, methods of assessment, learning outcomes, learning activities, and evaluation.
Each course stands alone; you may want to take one class or all three. The certificate consists of three courses, totaling nine credit hours, and may be earned in one year. All credits may be applied toward a UC Denver master’s degree in Information and Learning Technologies. It is recommended to take INTE 5200 first, but it is not required.
All courses are three graduate credit hours. Tuition for each course is $349/credit ($1047/course) + $100 online course fee.
