This session will highlight:

The 2014 Online Teaching Certificate Program prepares educators to teach and improve online courses and offers mentor support throughout the program and with option to specialize in your electives.

The Mastery Series Programs - Blended, Mobile, Nursing, Online Labs, and Spatial Thinking. The Mastery Series Programs have expanded for 2014.
What exactly is the Mastery Series Program?

Mastery Series Programs are a series of three workshops focusing on the research, teaching, and assessment of the specialized learning environments. Throughout each of the workshops, you will explore relevant research and use that research to help you design a sound course built around research and best practices.. Each workshop is one week long and between each workshop there will be a three-week break to give you time to complete some self-guided research and reflect on your learning.
