Program of Courses
|The Reflective Teaching Portfolio
The Reflective Teaching Portfolio is an intrinsic part of the program. An ongoing, reflective journal of a faculty member's evolution as a teacher , it is a valuable and widely recognized professional development tool. The reflective teaching portfolio includes a statement of teaching philosophy, responsibilities and goals, as well as key evidence showing how these goals are being reached. For this certificate program, the portfolio should focus on the 1.) role of technology in one's teaching practice, 2.) reflection on the impact of technology on teaching and learning and 3.) ideas you may have to infuse technology in your teaching.

|Creating, Managing and Sharing Materials on the Computer
The more you use digital content in your courses, the more data needs to prepared, formatted, named and managed. This session establishes best practices in how to create, manage and share content in your classes and with your students that will enhance assignments and make orderly collaboration possible. The practices established in this workshop will be assessed by the cross-workshop work completed within the program.
The use of Google Docs requires a full spectrum of skills that support good pedagogy and use of technology. This session will focus on exploring different course assignment scenarios that involve collaborative and individual work. Work created in this session will result in an assignment that can be given to your students or might serve as a prototype for future efforts.
|VoiceThread: A Self directed Online Project
VoiceThread is an interactive tool that seamlessly combines audio and video in an easy to use interactive way that is suitable for both students and faculty to develop projects, assignments and presentations. This portion of the program is conducted online in a self-directed tutorial where participants will build a VoiceThread to be shared and commented upon as part of the program assessment.
Each workshop will include surveys and assessments, and faculty will be required to develop and maintain a Reflective Teaching Portfolio that can be made available for collegial review at the time of completion.
