Feedback form is now closed.
Starting in 2014, the Office of Multimodal Learning at Central Washington University combined existing professional development opportunities with an institute for online teaching to offer faculty a master online teacher certification. The institute has enrolled over 200 faculty members, with more than 50 applying for certification, and over 40 having completed all the requirements to become a master online teacher. Faculty participate in the institute (in person or online), complete required and elective training workshops, attend faculty learning community meetings, develop an online course, and have their course reviewed for quality assurance. After completing all the requirements, faculty receive a stipend and can use the certification for performance review. The effectiveness of the certification program can be evaluated based on a number of criteria, including faculty evaluations completed during the institute, increased faculty participation in professional development opportunities, online course quality assurance reviews, and comparison of student evaluations of instruction before and after certification.
Session Objectives:
1. Identify core components of the master online teacher certification
2. Outline development and implementation strategies that can be used at other institutions
3. Compare professional development opportunities provided for faculty
4. Discuss ways to evaluate effectiveness of faculty professional development
