This past summer marked the successful launch of the Online Course Redesign and Faculty Certification program at SHSU. In approximately two months, 138 faculty members successfully achieved certification. Attendees were able to participate in a guided course review with their online courses as well as collaborate with Instructional Designers on implementing changes developed during the self-evaluation process. Read SHSU Online’s newsletter article on the Summer Cohorts for more information and attendee feedback.
Enrollment for the Fall 2018 semester cohorts opened on August 31, 2018. Thanks to encouragement from Provost Dr. Richard Eglsaer, and high interest from online teaching faculty, the fall cohorts were full less than five days after registration opened! Enrollment for the Spring semester certification cohorts will open in late November/early December 2018.
SHSU Online is also developing a fully online version of the Course Redesign and Faculty Certification program for faculty that cannot attend the face-to-face cohorts. The program goal is for all online instructors to achieve certification to teach online by the end of 2019.
