Teaching Online Certification Course

This course is perfect for BU faculty who will be teaching online or would like a refresher. This is not a self-paced course; it is taught as a synchronous course that requires approximately 10 hours of work per week. You will be required to read course materials, participate in weekly discussion borads/activities, and actively collaborate on group projects. To teach online, it really is beneficial to be an online student. Free to BU faculty. To register, email Julie Wolfe by 12 May 2015.

Teaching Online Certification Course (5 week) Pre-class/Orientation assignments begin: May 14, 2015 Course begins: May 18, 2015 Course ends: June 21, 2015

About the Course: This 5-week fully online course provides instructors with a student’s perspective, guidance on designing an online course, and instructions for using the various D2L tools. This is NOT a self-paced course. Participants will be required to read course materials, participate in weekly discussion boards, collaborate in a group project, and develop content relevant to their own online course. In order to complete the activities and course development exercises, participants should have a course they are scheduled (or planning) to teach online within the next year. Time commitment will be approximately 10 hours/week depending on familiarity with D2L. We are confident that all participants will look at this experience as positive and beneficial to successfully developing their online course. Please see the attachment for related information.
