Master the art of online teaching and design an effective learning environment within your field of interest.
The OLC Mastery Series Program emphasizes the theory and application of research on key topics and culminates in a Recognition of Mastery in a topic. Each series consists of three week-long modules that help you explore relevant research and use that research to help you design an effective teaching and learning environment. Successful participants of a Mastery Series program will receive a PDF certificate of completion, as well as a digital badge of completion via Acclaim*.
*Please note that badges will not be issued for programs prior to 2018.

"What I learned in this Mobile Learning Mastery Series I immediately put to use in my teaching curriculum. I have engaged my students using their own tools to help them develop a sociological imagination. They are using their Smartphones and tablets to comment on sociological theories and concepts and engage each other both inside and outside of the classroom. My students like to see their comments projected on the projection screen at the front of the class. One student stated in class the other day that "this is the only class we can come to and tweet and it's ok by the professor." Then she tweeted her comment while in class."
