LCC/CTE Teaching Online Certification (TOC)
Facilitated by Rebecca Lawson
Description of the LCC/CTE TOC
Offered Online June 14th through July 26th, 2010
As online enrollment continues to rise, so too does the need for faculty who are prepared to teach online. Designing and teaching online courses requires skills that differ somewhat from those required of teaching face-to-face classes. To that end, this six week online seminar has been designed specifically for faculty who will be teaching online and/or hybrid courses. Upon completion, the successful participant will be able to:
- Apply basic skills and knowledge relevant to teaching in the online environment.
- Create an ANGEL course site which is easy to navigate, has a comprehensive and clear syllabus, and uses effective strategies for creating a community in the online classroom.
- Compare and contrast the appropriate and potential uses of Web-based applications and educational technologies (E.g., discussion forums, PowerPoint, chats, blogs, social networking, etc.).
- Distinguish among and employ a wide range of assessment strategies.
- Identify resources and strategies available to LCC students to help them be successful in online courses.
- Identify strategies and resources available to help faculty manage their time and workload when teaching online.
Participants can expect to spend a minimum of 10 hours per week engaged in this six week seminar. While this is an online training, it is not self-paced. There are things to do, learn, reflect on, and submit nearly every day.
The "Introduction to ANGEL" workshop offered through the Center for Teaching Excellence, or evidence of the equivalent. If you wish to opt out of this prerequisite training, you may take an ANGEL proficiency exam. To schedule your proficiency exam, please complete "The ANGEL Proficiency Exam Request" form.
Faculty members will receive a $550 stipend based on participation and completion of requirements.
