About the Online Teaching Certificate:
This 4-week online course prepares faculty and teaching assistants at The University of Toledo to effectively facilitate teaching and learning in an online environment. Participants will gain insights about online teaching and learning through discussion, sharing, peer mentoring, collaboration, and self-reflection. The course also enables participants to practice using various online communication and assessment tools as they complete learning activities from the student perspective.
The course is organized into 4 modules outlined as Introduction, Course Preparation, Course Facilitation, and Assessment & Management. Each module begins with an introduction, followed by measurable learning objectives, learning activities, and a checklist of how learning will be assessed. At the end of each module, extra resources are provided to further expand and extend your learning. In each module, participants will explore general concepts related to online teaching, and will have opportunities to practice and reflect on key concepts through a range of individual and group activities.
About Applying the Quality Matters Rubric:
Quality Matters (QM) is designed to improve the quality of online and blended courses by establishing a peer-reviewed quality assurance review process. In this workshop, you will become familiar with the Quality Matters standards and participate in a practice peer course review of an online course using the review tools. After successfully completing this workshop, you will be eligible to move into the Online Peer Reviewer Certification, and gain practical ideas to improve your own courses using the QM Standards.
Space is limited. Register early.
