Please see the application for specific admission requirements for this program. Although a college degree or professional experience in the field are not required, applicants with such experience may receive preference for admission when program capacity is limited.
All candidates who wish to receive the Teaching Online Certificate are required to:
Connect your classroom education with real-world experiences through a Next Steps Experience course. These courses allow students to gain hands-on experience by working closely with instructors and/or peers on real-world projects.
Advance your understanding of Teaching Online and explore topics such as foundations of curriculum and design; instructional technology tools; enhancing your online course through multimedia; and advanced curriculum design for the online classroom.
Candidates are also encouraged to take the Next Step by enrolling in the Teaching Online Practicum where they will create a capstone project focusing on their lessons and skills learned throughout the entire Teaching Online certificate program. This course will focus on student’s progress and practical application to current or prospective work opportunities. Students will work collaboratively with an advisor before submitting their final project. During the application process, a prospective candidate should consider a possible project or course they will build throughout the program. The project or course will allow the student to apply learned tools and demonstrate results in delivering curriculum online.
Students enrolled in this certificate program are required to begin with “Introduction to Online Learning” and to follow with “Foundations of Curriculum Design and Evaluation.” These two courses set the foundation for the remaining classes in the certificate program.
All new applicants to the certificate program who choose to begin the program with any of the other courses should note the required prerequisites.
