The OLC Online Teaching Certificate

The OLC Online Teaching Certificate Program is offered as a sequence of one foundation course and three electives leading from the conceptual to the implementation of online learning effectiveness best practices. The program’s theoretical underpinning stems from OLC’s five pillars of quality in online education: student satisfaction, access, learning effectiveness, faculty satisfaction, and institutional cost effectiveness.

  • Opportunity to work with and learn from recognized experts in the field.
  • Actionable feedback for immediate application.
  • Enhancement of existing instructional design and planning strategies.
  • Collaboration with peers from a variety of institutions and disciplines.

The Advanced Certificate Program helped me redesign my course to include learning experiences that will engage students in their learning as well as facilitate students’ understanding of how their learning connects to the course outcomes.
