The Master Teacher Certification Program, established in the Fall of 1998, is designed to provide quality learning experiences for new and experienced faculty members to actively engage in reflective and creative exercises and dialogues to enhance teacher effectiveness and student success. This collaborative program provides enriching learning opportunities through face-to-face discussions across disciplines, online content and discussions, and exploration of educational technology. The Master Teacher Certification Program is held each Fall and Spring semester and is open to both full-time and adjunct faculty. The program consists of six topics covered in an online course that includes discussions, assignments, and other activities. Topics include creating a community of learners, active learning techniques, assessment strategies, critical thinking strategies, ethical decision making, and teaching with technology. The program also includes face-to-face discussion sessions, group activities, and the development of a teaching philosophy statement. For more information, contact Luis A. Lopez, llopez@alamo.edu.
