Thank you to all of the SAC Faculty Champions for sharing their time and talent by providing Online Teaching Support.
Each department has identified Faculty Champions that are Online Teaching Certified and can provide assistance to Faculty that are currently enrolled in the OTC Course, are preparing their own course for Peer Review or may have other questions about Online Teaching for their specific discipline. Please email email@example.com if you would like to be included on this list as a Faculty Champion.
Online Teaching Certification (OTC) is a 4 Step Process
1. OTC training (register for a Fall Section on Alamo Talent).
2. Faculty Learners build their online course in a Sand Box by completing OTC course assignments with guidance from the Faculty Mentor (concurrent with step 1. OTC training).
3. Peer Review of the Sand Box course built. (Scheduled to happen sometime in Spring 2021)
4. Completion of Quality Matters workshop (APPQMR) by Fall 2021.
OTC Training Spring 2021
The OTC training is arranged in a series of topics and related tasks. During the training, Faculty Learners will also be building their own online course. They will learn about the elements of a good online course home page, and then build their own home page within their SandBox course. They will be able to use content from their existing courses, and courses from their department, their Faculty Mentor, and their colleagues. The Faculty Mentor's role will be to provide guidance and assistance as needed. Faculty Mentors are enrolled in the Faculty Learner’s SandBox as a “Teacher.” At the end of the training, the OTC workshop facilitator will verify each of those tasks (activities). The role of the Faculty Champion is to answer any question the Faculty Learner or their Mentor may have about the OTC assignments or about setting up their own course in Canvas including preparation for Peer Review.
