About the Effective Online Teaching Practice Course

The Course prepares you to implement essential online practices shown to improve student outcomes by showcasing exemplary online teaching nationwide, featuring interviews with leading experts in college instruction. Each module introduces a specific topic and evidence-based technique to try out immediately and ends with a reflection on that technique. There are 25 online modules from the following four themes.

  • Creating an Inclusive and Supportive Online Learning Environment
  • Promoting Active Learning Online
  • Designing Student-Centered Courses
  • Inspiring Inquiry and Preparing Lifelong Learning in Your Online Course

The Course is the first course designed for higher education faculty that leads to a nationally-recognized Certificate in Effective College Instruction endorsed by the American Council on Education (ACE). A recent study from Johns Hopkins University speaks to the impact of this program at Miami-Dade College where student evaluations were higher and faculty confidence and effectiveness were increased.
