Overview

This online course has been designed specifically for faculty who will be teaching online and/or hybrid courses. Successful completion will result in an online teaching certification granted by Lansing Community College's Center for Teaching Excellence. Note: You must be an LCC employee to register for this course.

Participants will develop an understanding of D2L and other online tools, gain knowledge of pedagogical approaches, assessment options, educational technology and inclusive student engagement techniques in the online learning environment. Participants will explore existing and evolving technologies, including communication and collaboration applications as well as educational technology systems and trends. This is a pass/fail course that will require weekly discussions, assignments and a guided creation of a master course. Please Note: Participants can expect to spend an estimated 5-8 hours per week engaged in this 9-week online course, resulting in a master course of their own design. While this is an online training, it is not self-paced. Additionally, participants will be required to attend two-three ORT (Online Real-Time) meetings via WebEx. The dates and times will be provided when the course begins.

Competencies expected for an optimal experience in this course include basic computer skills, including the ability to log in to D2L, use email, add and open email attachments, create, save, and modify files in commonly used word processing formats. Also, proficiency in copying, pasting and downloading/installing software.
