Program of Courses


The Reflective Teaching Portfolio

The reflective teaching portfolio is an intrinsic part of this program. We begin the certificate program with and orientation and discussion on the value of a reflective teaching portfolio.  The Reflective Teaching Portfolio is an ongoing and reflective journal of a faculty member's evolution as a teacher. A valuable and widely recognized professional development tool that includes a statement of teaching philosophy, responsibilities and goals, as well as key evidence showing how these goals are being reached. 

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 you create manage and share content in your course work and with your students that will enhance assignments and make orderly collaboration possible. The practices established in this workshop will be assessed as evidenced in the work completed within the program.

Google Docs

The use of Google Docs requires the 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, video in an easy to use interactive way that is suitable for both students and faculty to use 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 that will be shared and commented upon as part of the assessment process.


Certificate Completion

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.
