The Office of e-Campus Learning offers a Certificate Program in Online Course Development and Teaching. Having studied a number of quality professional development and training programs and researched best practices, the Instructional Design Center (IDC) has developed a professional development certificate program designed to encourage and support best practices in online teaching.

Congratulations to Our Latest Online Course Development and Teaching Certificate Graduates!

Fall 2019 PD2 Course Participants and Instructor

More than 200 members of the Eastern Kentucky University community have completed the EKU Online Course Development and Online Teaching Certificate program. The intensive 8-week program is sponsored by the Instructional Design Center in the Office of eCampus Learning.

The course, designed to help professors transition their in-person teaching skills into the online classroom, covers a number of topics, including the Community of Inquiry (COI) model of learning and Quality Matters (QM) assessment, as well as how to use blogs, wikis, and discussion boards more effectively. Participants learn in the same ways their future students will, with online assignments, readings, assessments and discussions. Participants also attend three required face-to-face meetings. Faculty/student engagement is strongly emphasized, along with other teaching best practices for the online modality.
