Online Faculty Training Series

Faculty who teach fully online classes are enrolled in a 45 hour online faculty training series. This training is the result of a concerted effort to address success gaps in online versus face-to-face classes, support the development of knowledgeable and innovative faculty, and ensure a high quality online educational experience for students.

This 45-hour training is required for all faculty (full time and adjunct) who teach fully online classes for college credit. Faculty will have 2.5 semesters to complete the training series. Upon completion of the required 45 hours, faculty will be compensated for completing this series at a non-instructional rate ($20 hr/$900 total). Faculty who have already taken parts of this series will not need to retake classes and will still receive the full 45- hour stipend.
