Graduate Certificate in Online Teaching and Learning
This certificate is ideal for people who are already teaching or who hope to do so in the future, whether in P-12, higher education, or at the corporate level. These courses will prepare you to become a thoughtful and skilled online educator at a time when there is a pressing need for these skills in the educational landscape.
After completing five courses, you can earn your Graduate Certificate in Online Teaching and Learning through UGA's Mary Frances Early College of Education Learning, Design, and Technology program. Certified P-12 teachers can also earn the Georgia PSC-approved Online Teaching Endorsement through this program. All courses are taught by experienced faculty, offered online, and scheduled for busy graduate students and working adults.
This program provides a solid foundation in learning, evaluation, and instructional theories related to online learning and the creation of effective online courses. You will gain experience with a broad range of technology tools commonly used in online education with multiple opportunities to apply this knowledge in authentic online instructional settings relevant to your current or intended careers.
Throughout this program, the emphasis is not on “one best way” to teach online, but rather on developing a deep understanding of online learning and learners, a wide-range of instructional tools and strategies, and the skills to choose critically among these to best teach diverse learners in a variety of online formats.
