Session Description

With the increase in the number of online courses being offered, it is important for faculty to be prepared to teach online. In this presentation, we share best practices for their preparedness to teach online based on the rules and procedures of micro-credentials and quality assurance in online courses. Faculty interested in teaching online or developing classes in the online environment are expected to be both credentialed and have their courses go through an approval process.

This session will walk you through evidence-based practices for online teaching and learning. This session has implications for faculty who teach online, for instructional designers who offer professional development for online teaching, and for administrators who support online learning at higher education institutions.
