A recent study showed that in 2013 the number of students taking at least one online course is 7.1 million, which means one out three students are taking at least one course online. With higher demands from students, more schools are offering courses/programs online. However, an online course creates an entirely different learning environment that requires the instructor to rethink the pedagogy and learning strategies.
In 2014-2015, the Center for Instructional Design and Academic Technology (CIDAT) at Saint Xavier University (SXU) began working with seven faculty members from each of the schools and college to explore existing online teaching programs/certificates from other institutions. We have successfully designed SXU’s own teaching certificate course, Certificate of Preparedness for Online Teaching (CPOT), which is designed for SXU faculty members who are interested in making online teaching an important part of their academic careers.
