Welcome to the Program for Online Teaching’s 2012-2013 Certificate Program

 

Welcome fellow adventurers!

You have arrived at the Program for Online Teaching’s 2012-2013 Certificate Program blog. I am Jim Sullivan, and I will be facilitating the conversation on the blog this year. On behalf of the POT leadership team, I invite you to join us as we work together to enhance our knowledge of online teaching and learning.

Our program begins on September 1st; in the meantime, I encourage you to use this page to do the following:

1. Explore

By clicking the syllabus link on the top of this page, you can review a draft version of our syllabus (please note that we will be refining and rearranging until our September 1 start date) and decide if this journey appeals to you.

2. Set Up

Once you decide you wish to join this year-long adventure, then please use the “To Get Started” checklist on the left sidebar to walk through what you need to do to prepare for our September 1 start. The most significant task is to set up your own blog. And for that, you can find detailed instructions on the right sidebar of the blog.

3. Connect!

Finally, please join our facebook group (which you can do with some privacy) so that you can ask any questions you may have about setting up your blog or the nature of our program to our POT leadership team, program alumni, and current participants.

I hope to see / hear / read you soon in our online community. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Jim

Looking forward to the Program for Online Teaching’s certificate program, 2012!

I can’t wait to get started with the next certificate class for 2012-2013! I was in the first cohort for the certificate program and have been involved with the program ever since. I find that this is a topic where things keep changing and I can always learn more. This is likely where I will […]
