    CITL's Master Course in Online Teaching (MCOT) is a deep dive into online teaching strategies that extends what was presented during previous teaching academies. Prior participation in an instructional development series is not required but professional experience with university level instruction is strongly encouraged.

    • Module 1 - Designing Your Online Course
    • Module 2 - Developing Your Learning Community
    • Module 3 - Adapting Best Teaching Practices to Your Online Course
    • Module 4 - Motivating Your Students to Excel

    Certificates will be presented to those who complete all course requirements.

    • Complete each Tech Tools assignment
    • Attend 3 of 4 synchronous course meetings
