Online teaching class available

Update | Tuesday, February 11, 2020

"Online Course: Effective Online Teaching" is required for Columbus State faculty teaching at a distance for the first time. It is also available to faculty members who want to refresh their distance learning teaching skills.

It will be offered beginning in March and then again in May. This fully online course prepares participants to teach in the web format, using department-approved shells (courses that have been designed by experienced faculty and undergone quality peer review). The course takes approximately 15 hours to complete over the three weeks it is offered. The course is facilitated, but is self-paced, and there are deadlines to keep participants on task. A certificate of successful completion will be awarded to participants who score 80% or higher on all training activities and the final project.
