Online Instructor Certificate Applications Due May 1

The Online Instructor Certificate Course was developed to provide faculty with the necessary contacts and skills needed to develop online or hybrid course. For over eight years, this program has assisted many faculty members in the course design process. This course is NOT about Blackboard. This course is as intensive as a graduate level course. It does cover the pedagogical aspects of teaching online. Some aspects covered in the course are developing goals and objectives, developing online activities, engaging your students, digital copyright issues, and so much more.

To be eligible for the stipend, the faculty member must be teaching an online course. Preference is given to those teaching online foundational studies courses or in a new online program that has been approved for the stipend by Extended Learning. Further eligibility requirements can be found on the application. Please keep in mind that not all applicants will be accepted as we can only manage a limited number of participants at a time. Also, if you feel you cannot keep up with the weekly due dates in the course along with your other obligations, you may wish to take the course at a later time.

The summer 2020 course will run from May 26 through August 3. Please click this link, https://indstate.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_bCuHzMmfZ6z1e29 to fill out the application.

Applications are due by the end of the day on May 1, 2020. Please direct any questions to Samantha Penney, samantha.penney@indstate.edu, 812-237-2345.
