Online Teaching Certificate Level 1

May 24, 25, 26

The Online Teaching Certificate program provides faculty with tools and strategies to develop and facilitate online and hybrid classes.  The Level 1 program consists of five workshops covering the following topics: competencies in online teaching, Quality Matters and course design, engagement strategies, accessibility, and grading and assessment. Faculty who attends the series and completes the assignments are eligible to receive an Online Teaching Certificate.  

Workshop Objectives:

  • Define and reflect on teaching competencies in an online environment 
  • Identify key standards of the Quality Matters Rubric 
  • Write measurable learning objectives and align objectives with instructional materials, assignments, and assessments 
  • Define and discuss methods of engaging students in online learning environments 
  • Summarize accessibility requirements that can inclusively support all learners and apply those principals to learning materials 

Online Teaching Certificate Level 2

* Prerequisite - a certificate for Online Teaching Level 1
June 7, 8, 9

In this Level 2 workshop, we’ll deepen understanding of essential topics from Level 1 by diving into real-world courses and analyzing the application of key concepts and skills. This is an active workshop—beyond examining exemplars, our cohort will come together to discuss each participant’s individual teaching context and explore methods for maximizing learning outcomes. Our goal is for you to leave with a working prototype that you can implement directly in your teaching practice. By the conclusion of this series, the learner will be able to: 

  • Edit online courses to master key standards of the Quality Matters Rubric 
  • Curate instructional materials to satisfy requirements for accessibility and permissibility 
  • Create activities that leverage technology tools to maximize student engagement and performance 
  • Utilize a variety of feedback strategies within Seton Hall’s digital learning environment 

Faculty will be asked to bring samples from a previous or upcoming semester to analyze and modify during lab time. 
Note: You must attend all 5 required lectures and complete all objectives to receive your certificate. By registering for this workshop, you are registering for the full Certificate series, which consists of five required workshops taking place on June 7, 8, and 9.

The Gen Z Summer Institute: #Help...Identifying Mechanisms that Engage Post-Millennial Learners

June 14, 15, 16

Together with Renee Robinson, Dean Communication & the Arts, the TLTC Center is excited to offer The Gen Z Summer Institute: #Help...Identifying Mechanisms that Engage Post-Millennial Learners. This three-day Summer Institute is an opportunity for faculty to engage with their peers about our youngest student population. Through presentations, discussions, and hands-on workshops led by a diverse group of campus professionals and faculty, attendees will unravel the mystery of GenZ and discover some strategies to engage them in various instructional settings.

By the end of the Institute, participants will have a better understanding of this student cohort as well as possess some of the best practices for interacting with GenZ in teaching and learning environments. If you attend Day 3, you'll leave with tangible materials that can be implemented in Fall courses.
